"Why did our dashboard break?" "What happened to my data?" "Why is this column missing?" If you've been on the receiving end of these messages (and many others!) from downstream stakeholders, you're not alone. Data engineering teams spend 40 percent or more of their time tackling data downtime, or periods of time when data is missing, erroneous, or otherwise inaccurate, and as data systems become increasingly complex and distributed, this number will only increase. To address this problem, data observability is becoming an increasingly important part of the cloud data stack, helping engineers and analysts reduce time to detection and resolution for data incidents caused by faulty data, code, and operational environments. But what does data observability actually look like in practice? During this presentation, Barr Moses, CEO and co-founder of Monte Carlo, will present on how some of today's best data leaders implement observability across their data lake ecosystem and share best practices for data teams seeking to achieve end-to-end visibility into their data at scale. Topics addressed will include: building automated lineage for Apache Spark, applying data reliability workflows, and extending beyond testing and monitoring to solve for unknown unknowns in your data pipelines.
