The Data Silos Holding You Back are All in Your Head

In this contributed article, Pete Goddard, CEO and co-founder of Deephaven Data Labs, paints a new picture of data: one of a synchronized group effort rather than a relay race of individual, siloed teams. He explains how the “baton pass” method of working with data – inherently full of risks and slow-downs – has evolved but not quite met the needs of modern data teams. Pete then outlines how de-compartmentalizing data use cases can lead to a new understanding that data is changing and exists on a continuum of time. When all data problems are viewed through the lens of how data needs to meet software, and diverse teams are brought together to work in tandem on these interesting problems, we can create one frictionless data world free from the current limits of intermediation.
