DataOps is a discipline focused on the delivery of data faster, better, and cheaper to derive business value quickly.

It closely follows the best practices of DevOps although the implementation of DataOps to data is nothing like DevOps to code. This paper will focus on providing a prescriptive approach in implementing a data pipeline using a DataOps discipline for data practitioners.

Data is unique in many respects, such as data quality, which is key in a data monetization strategy. Data governance is necessary in the enforcement of Data Privacy. Automation and orchestration in an interoperable hybrid cloud distributed data landscape is where DataOps excels. Whether an Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning or Business Intelligence use case, all of them depend on governed, high-quality data delivered quickly. This “How and Why to DataOps” paper provides a prescriptive approach toward implementing a data pipeline using a DataOps discipline for data practitioners. It also serves as a point of reference for business executives that wish to understand the level of effort and scope for a DataOps based organization.

5 signs you need a premium DNS service 

4 min read - Buy a domain name. Associate that domain with a DNS server. Done.  When you’re spinning up a presence on the internet, domain registrars make it easier to get started with a basic authoritative domain name system (DNS) hosting. That’s what most small businesses need ultimately—a reliable service that answers DNS queries. No more, no less.  Yet at a certain point, any thriving business starts to outgrow the standard DNS offering provided by most registrars. There’s a natural ceiling where a…

The Hybrid Cloud Forecast: A podcast with IBM Fellows

4 min read - In the Spring of 2021, my manager at the time, Jerry Cuomo, suggested that I start my own podcast. He had—and still has—a podcast called “The Art of Automation,” and he suggested that it was a great experience I should have, too. The topic? “How about hybrid cloud?” he suggested.
