About Us

Our company was started in 2018 by two founders with a vision to reduce the time to insight, and accelerate the time to value, for customers.

In 2019 we started developing our technologies around both the emerging discipline of DataOps (with a clear focus on the true principles of DevOps), and extracting value from volume in IoT timeseries data.

In 2020 we publicly shared our DataOps Philosophy (#TrueDataOps) and released our DataOps for Snowflake platform supported by our patent-pending IoT Data Compression algorithm (Gallium).

In 2021 we are focused on supporting our diverse customer base across EMEA and North America to transform their organisations.

Our Story

DataOps.live has been born out of the data analytics professional services firm Datalytyx, which used the DataOps.live platform in numerous client engagements during the past two years.

DataOps.live co-founders Justin Mullen and Guy Adams developed the platform to address common data problems that afflicted most clients: slow development times, backlogged teams, and poor quality and version control. While refining the product in the crucible of real client engagements, the two drew on their background in software development to solidify a seven-pillar methodology for applying DevOps to data, which they call TrueDataOps. They then collaborated with other DataOps pioneers, including Wayne Eckerson, Mike Ferguson and Kent Graziano to write the book DataOps for Dummies.

To support key DataOps features, such as the ability to accurately develop, branch, and deploy both code and data, the DataOps.live team built its platform around Snowflake—the only data platform with zero-copy cloning. As a result, DataOps.live established a strong partnership with Snowflake and became a certified product on the Snowflake Partner Connect marketplace, where customers can instantly provision trials.

Our Vision

We firmly believe that DataOps starts with the truest principles of DevOps, Agile, Lean, test-driven development and total Quality Management. And we then must apply these principles to the unique discipline of data, data warehousing, data lake management and data analytics, which encompasses everything from traditional analytics to machine learning, data science and AI. We believe that the data environments of the future will be unable to function effectively without DataOps.

Our vision is that over the next 5 years every organisation will move to DataOps as the only way of sensibly building and governing data environments. Those adopting DataOps will have the agility to cope with the data tsunami upon them, the rigour to maintain control, and the power to deliver business value. The rest will face ever-increasing costs, reducing value and ultimately create a crisis in which they are replaced.

Our goal at DataOps.live is to create platforms and tools that underpin the philosophy of DataOps (#TrueDataOps) to enable every company and stakeholder to get better, faster, and higher quality data, with no compromise on governance and data security.
