SAN FRANCISCO – March 14, 2019 – StreamSets®, provider of the industry’s first DataOps platform for modern data integration, today announced DataOps Summit 2019, the first professional conference devoted to best practices, thought leadership and technical education for the emerging domain of DataOps. Held September 3-5, 2019 in San Francisco, the DataOps Summit brings together enterprise data professionals, industry experts and key technology companies in the DataOps ecosystem. Confirmed speakers for the fall event include data leaders from forward-thinking companies such as healthcare leader Humana, international broadband provider Ericsson and pharmaceutical multinational GSK.
The mission of DataOps Summit 2019 is to empower data professionals to transform their data management using DataOps practices. The three-day conference agenda features keynotes from leading enterprises and industry participants, breakout tracks for data engineers, architects and leaders, and technical training for engineers and developers — all yielding strategies and best practices for implementing DataOps.
“DataOps is about accelerating the data integration and AI and ML value cycle through a DevOps approach, but it is a new approach that requires education,” said Shekhar Iyer, president, StreamSets. “The goal of the DataOps Summit is for enterprise leaders and practitioners to leave with a firm understanding of DataOps as well as a blueprint for how to deliver it and reap its benefits. They will return well-equipped to tackle modern data challenges posed by data drift, hybrid multi-cloud architectures and real-time analytics (AI and ML) demands.”

DataOps is the application of DevOps practices to data management and integration to reduce the cycle time of data analytics, with a focus on automation, collaboration and monitoring. DataOps is essential for a data landscape marked by architectural complexity with accelerating change.
StreamSets built the industry’s first multi-cloud DataOps platform for modern data integration, helping enterprises to continuously flow big, streaming and traditional data to their data scientists and data-intensive applications. It uniquely handles data drift, those frequent and unexpected changes to data that break pipelines and damage data integrity. The platform combines the open source StreamSets Data Collector™ for execution of any-to-any pipelines (the data plane) with a cloud-native StreamSets Control Hub™ for the design, monitoring and performance management of multi-pipeline topologies (the control plane). Founded in 2014 by Girish Pancha, former chief product officer of Informatica, and Arvind Prabhakar, a former engineering leader at Informatica and Cloudera, StreamSets is backed by top-tier Silicon Valley venture capital firms, including Battery Ventures, New Enterprise Associates (NEA), and Accel Partners.
