Zero Gravity 2022: Activating Metadata to Handle Information Pipeline Chaos – Atlan


I simply spoke at Zero Gravity by Incorta, a contemporary cloud information pipeline occasion. I’ve been working with information pipelines for years, so it was wonderful sharing about my experiences taming the chaos in right now’s trendy information stack!

In case you missed my discuss or wish to dive into the main points, right here’s my slide deck from this discuss. If in case you have any questions, please drop a remark or attain out to me on Twitter or LinkedIn!

In the present day, metadata is in every single place. Each part of the trendy information stack and each person interplay on it generates metadata. Aside from conventional varieties like technical metadata (e.g. schemas) and enterprise metadata (e.g. taxonomy, glossary), our information techniques now create solely new types of metadata.

All these new types of metadata are being created by dwelling information techniques, typically in real-time. This has led to an explosion within the measurement and scale of metadata. Nonetheless, this has made it tough for centralized information engineering and reporting groups to completely leverage metadata that holds the important thing to the elusive promised land — a single supply of fact.

Groups right now battle to maintain tempo with “service requests” and to ramp up on area experience wanted. The online result’s misplaced alternative. However by successfully gathering metadata, a group can unify context about all their instruments, processes, and information.

This session covers how can information groups leverage metadata to energy higher collaboration, enabling organizations to speed up onboarding and construct information merchandise outdoors the central group. I’ll cowl energetic metadata and the way its utility by embedded collaboration, open API interface, powered by data graphs, programmable-intelligence bots, information course of automation, reverse metadata, will help meet enterprise governance requirements.
