To paraphrase an old saying: “It takes a village to get insights from data.” Today data analysts, data scientists, and data engineers are hard at work delivering insights. These groups have a lot of data, a lot of tools, and a lot of talented people. So why are the majority of projects failing? They are failing by functioning in ways similar to how software teams operated ten years ago. Data and analytic team leaders need to innovate, yet struggle to keep up with customer requests and not let embarrassing data errors slip into production. The answer is to take ideas from Agile, DevOps, and Deming and apply them to the complex world of data analytics.

As Gene Kim wrote: “So much of the genesis of the DevOps movement was to address the huge problems of getting code into production. These days, there is an orthogonal problem of getting data from where it resides (often trapped in data warehouses) to where it can be used by teams to help their organizations win in the marketplace. I’m hoping that this book [The Phoenix Project] conclusively demonstrates to all that data is ultimately a software effort and can be massively helped by DevOps principles and patterns.”

In this presentation you’ll learn why the booming world of AI, data analytics, science, and insights is failing and how principles from Agile, DevOps, and Lean Manufacturing are the way forward.
