data.world Finishes Mighty Canary Acquisition to Automate DataOps
data.world has acquired Mighty Canary Technology, a company that provides data quality management and data governance solutions. The acquisition will enable data.world to expand its capabilities in data collaboration and enhance its platform’s data quality and governance features.
Specifically, data.world is integrating the technology into its data cataloging platform to bring bot-driven automation to DataOps, using monitoring agents called BB Bots to send automated, real-time notifications. According to the company:
The application uses automations to surface contextual insights and real-time data quality updates directly to the BI, communications, and collaboration tools that data consumers use. The DataOps application provides a seamless way for data teams to update data consumers on the health of their data, communicate important information, and receive feedback – increasing the use of high-quality data.
Federal agencies that already use data.world at the standard tier or above can use the new DataOps application free of charge.
data.world has scheduled a live demo of this technology on May 16, 2023 at noon Eastern time.
