DevOps / DataOps

Orion Governance Use Case

Giving DevOps and DataOps the Tools They Need

DevOps has become an organizational culture and philosophy at many firms that embrace and rely on software development principles and IT operations to function in sync. The goal is to provide services at a high velocity while continuously developing, continuously improving for continuous delivery. It has its foundation on the agile methodology and is an extension of Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), with steps of code, build, test, release, deploy, operate and plan.

There are 7 key practices of DevOps at the intersection of Development, QA and Operations:

  • Configuration Management
  • Infrastructure as Code
  • Continuous Integration
  • Automated Testing
  • Continuous Delivery
  • Continuous Deployment
  • Continuous Monitoring

In reality, firms are realizing that DevOps are only as good as the quality of the data they produce. And speed to deploy functionality even as the quantity of data explodes, structured/unstructured data, cloud/on-prem architectures, collecting, aggregating, wrangling and anonymizing data to become data-driven, comes at the expense of data operations and management (DataOps). Maintaining data quality and data integrity is a huge challenge against big data volume, velocity, and variety. How to assure DataOps while embracing DevOps is essential to the latter’s success.

In other words, firms need to enhance their DataOps with Data Governance programs, processes, and tools including Data Lineage, Data Catalog, Impact Analysis, Trust Propagation, Active Metadata such as Augmented Data Quality to ensure that they can be successful in the application of DevOps principles.

Overcoming Pandemic Disruptions

Business Problem

The pandemic forced many businesses to implement disruptive digital transformations that had been delayed. The DevOps and Agile movements prompted organizations to embrace these capabilities to stay relevant for their customers and to be competitive. The speed of Agile and DevOps adoption creates a discrepancy between the additional functionality and the quality of collected data.

The Orion Governance Solution

Most firms have development teams with software engineers and coders. But they don’t have a good handle on the firm’s data and analytics. The saying “data rich and information poor” describes this situation. EIIG helps with an end-to-end view of a firm’s metadata to identify required steps to become data-driven, which in turn enables informed decisions.

Business Benefits with Orion Governance

The benefits are reduced time to insights for these large disruptive digital transformations and cost savings through better resource management of their time focused on what the data truths are available and shared.
