Modern Data Engineering in the Cloud

Presented by

Andrew Brust, Brian Dirking, Mike Destein

About this talk

Data engineering, the discipline of integrating, conforming, and readying data for downstream analysis, has been with us for many years, but it has new relevance and criticality today. Data engineering has to support analytics, machine learning, and maintain data quality; and it must ensure data privacy, security, and protection of sensitive data, for compliance with GDPR and other regulatory frameworks. A great data engineering platform must support full-fledged and operationalized data pipelines, be cloud-capable, and run on modern, distributed data execution platforms like Apache Spark. Finally, a modern data engineering platform must support savvy business analysts and other “citizen data engineers” – in addition to the more technical level database engineers, operators, and administrators. That’s a long list of requirements, but it is readily attainable with today’s technology.
