DevOps / DataOps

Orion Governance Use Case

Giving DevOps and DataOps the Tools They Need

DevOps has become organizational culture and philosophy at many firms that embrace and rely on software development principles and IT operations to function in sync in order to deliver 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 the intersection of Development, QA and Operations:

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

Unfortunately,  firms that embrace 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 anonymising data to become data-driven, comes at the expense of data operations and management (DataOps). Maintaining data quality, data integrity, is a huge challenge against big data volume, velocity and variety; requiring excessive coordination. But unfortunate for data, not much is documented.

If additional Data Ops rigor was given to existing practices with a complement of Metadata, Data Lineage, Data Quality and Data Governance programs, processes, tools and resources. then more firms could be successful with DevOps principles. Orion Governance EIIG supplements Information Insights and Analytics by bringing a centralized automated, AI/ML supported, real-time comprehensive view of all data assets in the data supply chain with Zero Impact to Production (ZIP), upon which actions and decisions can be made.

Overcoming Pandemic Disruptions

Business Problem

The time of this with the DevOps and Agile movements have resulted in organizations embracing these capabilities in order to continue to exist, stay relevant to their customers and be competitive.
