According to data.world, data engineers spend as much as 30% of their time answering, and re-answering, questions about the status and quality of data and reports. Even so, downstream data consumers often don’t trust the data feeding their reports. To address this gap, data.world is introducing a new DataOps application to its data catalog platform.
The DataOps application — which is free to agencies that already use data.world at the standard tier or above — provides real-time updates on data quality and communicates health metrics that increase the use of high-quality data. The application works across the BI, communications, and collaboration tools that data consumers use every day.
data.world will hold a webinar to demo this application (registration required) and share best practices for leveraging a data catalog for DataOps to surface:
- Data quality updates, including dbt pipeline freshness
- Data lineage on data sets and reports
- Business glossary definitions in applications like Tableau, PowerBI and Slack.
