84% of organisations have been under pressure to shorten decision-making cycles since COVID-19 hit, according to our latest research, with 74% expecting it to be the new normal for their business. To take full advantage of the opportunity, organisations need to be able to process data faster than ever before, so that they can make business-critical decisions to ensure they recover from this crisis — and any future crises — and continue to succeed using data-driven insights.
Data created by companies is bigger than ever before, with many seeking to understand how DataOps processes can be used to convert such data into actionable business insights. Gartner defines DataOps as a collaborative data management practice aiming to improve the communication, integration and automation of data flows between data consumers and data managers in a company.
There remains a distance to go until businesses are fully aware of the most effective ways for maintaining good data quality and data management. Major cultural transformation must occur within many companies if DataOps is to be successful. This shift involves accepting that DataOps is a continuous process and serves as an impetus for organisational change by encouraging agility and endorsing change.
The primary task for developers, writing software, is a complex effort and the fact is, many developers would prefer to focus on coding exciting features. Asking them to also implement DevOps—and engage in some of the complex tasks it requires—takes their focus away from shipping new features and leads to inefficiency across your team. The only thing worse than not having any DevOps strategy is having unhappy developers who are so distracted by DevOps that your product delivery grinds to a halt. DevOps is fragmented and complex which offers a competitive advantage to mature organizations with the resources to attract & hire dedicated DevOps teams. So how can early-mid stage companies scale their DevOps to compete? How does their ability to do so impact their employee’s and organizations future?
