DataOps, a collaborative data management practice that allows organizations to truly operationalize their data assets, has been recognized and included for the first time by Gartner in their annual Hype Cycle for Data Management.
Gartner defines DataOps as:
…a collaborative data management practice focused on improving the communication, integration and automation of data flows between data managers and consumers across an organization. The goal of DataOps is to create predictable delivery and change management of data, data models and related artifacts. DataOps uses technology to automate data delivery with the appropriate levels of security, quality and metadata to improve the use and value of data in a dynamic environment.
Gartner Research Vice President Nick Heudecker explained why DataOps was recognized for the first time in post on the Gartner Blog Network. Heudecker explains that you cannot “buy” DataOps, but rather need to work towards an organizational change that adopts DataOps. Heudecker states that “like DevOps, the core of DataOps is a new way of working and collaborating.”

Composable Analytics got its start based on an understanding of the complexity of creating and maintaining data flow within and across enterprises. Composable Enterprise, an end-to-end DataOps platform, enables enterprises to implement, deploy and scale robust data management and analytics solutions. From our earliest prototypes and implementations, developing operational systems for the DoD, DHS and NATO, to our current at-scale deployments within the private sector (specifically, within the financial, oil & gas, and telecom sectors), we have seen the merits of adopting a disciplined DataOps practice and explained how we are moving forward with DataOps.
Today, we’re seeing DataOps transform the data management practice within companies, in a similar way to how DevOps has transformed their IT teams. We agree that DataOps is not a product that you can buy, it is certainly enabled by technology and tools. The Composable Enterprise platform has quickly become the industry’s first and leading Intelligent DataOps platform, and is set to lead in this space. Our customer case studies testify to the transformational power of adopting DataOps through the Composable Enterprise platform.
