So it is 2023, and like everyone, I have a few predictions. Check out my thoughts in this post about automating data transformations using column-aware metadata and why it is critical to the success of more collaboration and data sharing..
Data, data, data. It does seem we are not only surrounded by talk about data, but by the actual data itself. We are collecting data from every nook and cranny of the universe (literally!). IoT devices in every industry; geolocation information on our phones, watches, cars, and every other mobile device; every website or app we access—all are collecting data.
In order to derive value from this avalanche of data, we have to get more agile when it comes to preparing the data for consumption. This process is known as data transformation, and while automation in many areas of the data ecosystem has changed the data industry over the last decade, data transformations have lagged behind.
That started to change in 2022, and in 2023 I predict we will see an accelerated adoption of platforms that enable data transformation automation.Read the rest of the post here – Why Column-Aware Metadata Is Key to Automating Data Transformation
May 2023 be your most agile year yet!
