What is Data Teams Summit?

Data Teams Summit is the official DataOps peer-to-peer community.

It's a time each year for everyone, from DataOps, CloudOps, AIOps, MLOps, to other data professionals, to gather virtually to share the latest trends and best practices for running, managing, and working on teams responsible for data pipelines, data operations, and data-intensive analytics workloads.

New to data teams or DataOps?

DataOps is a holistic approach to the creation, deployment, monitoring, management, and optimization of data-driven applications. It describes the culture and rules of engagement that allow data teams to deliver and maintain high-quality, on-time data products, often powered by AI and machine learning, in an agile and cost-effective way.

DataOps defines how data teams work and also affects data consumers and those whose work causes new data to be created and used within the organization. Their work enables the entire organization to access data efficiently for data-driven decision-making and for the creation and delivery of data-driven applications.

Organizations with well-developed teams can expedite data-driven workflows and see results faster and better than others.
