The Blue Hill Research report DataOps: The Collaborative Framework for Enterprise Data-Flow Orchestration explains:

DataOps is an enterprise collaboration framework that aligns data-management objectives with data-consumption ideals to maximize data-derived value. DataOps “explodes” the information supply chain to create a data production line optimized for efficiency, speed, and monetization.

Borrowing from production optimization models and DevOps theory, DataOps’ successful adoption requires adherence to three key principles:

– Global Enterprise Data View: Define data journeys from source to action to value delivered, and measure performance across the entire system.
– Collaborative Thinking: Structure organizational behavior around the ideal data-journey model to maximize data-derived value and foster collaboration between data managers and data consumers.
– Get in Front of Data: Decentralize, then empower self-service data services and analytics throughout the organization.
