Breakout Session: Driving data culture change with data contracts

At GoCardless we’ve been implementing data contracts since 2021, using it as our vessel to increase the quality of data and drive a culture change in order to become a true data-driven organisation - one that really values its data and uses it to drive our products and business.

Following this talk you’ll understand the problems we’re trying to solve with data contracts, and how through both the tooling and by working with people across the organisation we’re changing our data culture to one where we’re much more deliberate about the data we produce, manage, and consume, leading to better data-driven outcomes across the business.

What is Data Teams Summit?

This year, we've taken the peer-to-peer empowerment of data teams one step further and formally transformed DataOps Unleashed into Data Teams Summit to better reflect our focus on the teams and individuals running, managing, and monitoring data pipelines.

Data Teams Summit is an annual, full-day virtual conference, led by data rockstars at future-forward organizations about how they're establishing predictability, increasing reliability, and creating economic efficiencies with their data pipelines.

We'll be back again in 2024 and look forward to another round of data team focused conversations.
