A look into how software developers are taking on more responsibility, and what this means for traditional tech rolesPhoto by Peter Gombos on UnsplashHistorically, IT departments have been structured across lines of technology, such as the app, UX, and database teams. More recently, the 2-pizza DevOps team has emerged and evangelized restructuring around lines of business. A single team is now responsible for a particular business capability end-to-end. This has ushered in the era of the full-stack developer — an engineer who can contribute to any facet of the system.
Master data management definitionMaster data management (MDM) is a set of disciplines, processes, and technologies used to manage an organization’s master data. Master data is data about business entities or objects (customers, suppliers, employees, products, cost centers, etc.) around which business is conducted. It is used to provide context to transactional data and is typically scattered around the business in various spreadsheets, applications, and even physical media.
DataOps (Data Operations) has assumed a critical role in the age of big data to drive definitive impact on business outcomes. This process-oriented and agile methodology synergizes the components of DevOps and the capabilities of data engineers and data scientists to support data-focused workloads in enterprises. Here is a detailed look at DataOps.
MLOps, AIOps, DataOps, ModelOps, and even DLOps. Are these buzzwords hitting your newsfeed? Yes or no, it is high time to get tuned for the latest updates in AI-powered business practices. Machine Learning Model Operationalization Management (MLOps) is a way to eliminate pain in the neck during the development process and delivering ML-powered software easier, not to mention the relieving of every team member's life.
Organizations large enough to have one or more data teams typically have a mix of data scientists, data engineers and data analysts on those teams. However, as companies become increasingly digital, they must be able to utilize massive amounts of data intelligently in a timely manner at scale. Achieving all that may require the addition of a DataOps engineer who can help the company operationalize its data.
Building a machine learning model is great, but to provide real business value, it must be made useful and maintained to remain useful over time. Machine Learning Operations (MLOps), overviewed here, is a rapidly growing space that encompasses everything required to deploy a machine learning model into production, and is a crucial aspect to delivering this sought after value.
Modern data development tools and how data quality impacts ML resultsPhoto by NASA on UnsplashML is all around us! From healthcare to education, it is being applied in many domains that affect our daily activities and it’s able to deliver many benefits. Data quality carries a very important and significant role in the development of AI solutions — just like the old “Garbage in, garbage out” — we can easily understand the weight of data quality and its potential impact in solutions like cancer detection or autonomous driving systems.
Organizations across the globe are striving to provide a better service to internal and external stakeholders by enabling various divisions across the enterprise, like customer success, marketing, and finance, to make data-driven decisions.

The general idea here is to make it far easier for all kinds of […]
Chances are, your brand has data scientists and operations professionals on the team, and while they do their best to collaborate, they each have their own areas of expertise. This could lead to miscommunications and misunderstandings. The data scientists can interpret the data, but they likely don’t have the background to manage business operations. Likewise..
Data Science is founded on time-honored concepts from statistics and probability theory. Having a strong understanding of the ten ideas and techniques highlighted here is key to your career in the field, and also a favorite topic for concept checks during interviews.
