Making Data Reliable
What is Data Engineering?
Data Engineering is the use of scientific principles to design and build machines, structures, and other items, including data pipelines and data lakes or data repositories. Data engineers scientifically set up and operate a company’s data infrastructure preparing it for analysis by data analysts and scientists. Data engineering is the aspect of data science that mainly focuses on the practical applications of data collection and analysis. For all the work that data scientists do to answer questions using large sets of information, there have to be mechanisms for collecting and validating that information. This is where data engineering steps in.
Types of Data Engineering Services
Master Data Management
Master data management is the implementation of one single master reference source for all business-critical data in an organization. MDM leads to fewer data-related issues and improved business processes
Enterprise Data Management
Enterprise Data Management is the process of accurately defining, effortlessly integrating and seamlessly retrieving data for both internal business processes and customer communication. EDM’s main focus is creation of accurate, reliable, verifiable and consistent data.
Data Lifecycle Management
Data Lifecycle Management is a policy-driven approach that can be automated to take data through its useful life. It is the process that can be defined and institutionalized to manage data right from its inception to the end of its useful life.
Customer Data Management
Customer Data Management is the process adopted by businesses to process and track their customer information throughout and beyond the course of an engagement. The data can be efficiently accessed and used by enterprises using various solutions to my customer information and proactively seek customer feedback.
Common Challenges in Data Engineering
While working on data, some of the common challenges we encounter are:
- Multiple data sources with no single source of truth
- Inaccessibility of data – the data is on multiple systems that are not accessible
- Scale of data – humongous volume of data deters companies from embarking on an analytics exercise
- Messy data that’s not easily available for analysis and usually is incomplete or inaccurate
- None of the data sources are integrated in one place for easy access
