Abstract: According to Google developers, "Only a small fraction of real-world ML systems are composed of the ML code. The required surrounding infrastructure is vast and complex". This talk focuses on how to simplify that technical environment, how to organize for success, and what to measure -- DataOps. By focusing on DataOps your teams will be able to deliver faster, with higher quality, using the tools that they love.
This session will cover three major topics:
1) Seven Shocking Steps: We will outline the seven Shocking Steps to create a Data Operations environment including how to: orchestrate, deploy, monitor quality, test data and code, encourage reuse, version control, branch & merge, manage environments.
2) How to Organize: We will look at best practices on how to organize your people.
3) How to Measure: We will show to how to measure the effectiveness of your Data Operations through key metrics.
