What Is DataOps?

DataOps is a discipline that has become a necessity in a market where the demand for access to data assets and data products is skyrocketing.  The inability of data platform teams and data management platforms to keep pace with the demands placed on them by DevOps-enabled teams led to the development of DataOps.[i]

In a nutshell, DataOps brings together data scientists, analysts, developers, and operations to work on the entire product/service lifecycle, from the design stage to production support.[ii]

This is an overview for those organizations starting the transition from DevOps to a Site Reliability Engineering integration.

The digital economy has transformed the outlook of all financial transactions, and DevOps is seen as an active contributor in this new paradigm.

I’ve started receiving emails from Intuit’s TurboTax service. This was very strange, especially because I have not used their service this year. The email was addressed to RAMON MARTINEZ.

Regardless, I’m now receiving all his tax information online, and could potentially change his Intuit’s account password and make some damage. So much for online security.
