More and more companies migrate their monolithic applications to a microservices architecture. However, maintaining a consistent and usable data landscape has only become more challenging by this: huge amounts of structured and unstructured data, and hundreds of data sources.
Furthermore, data-driven product development multiplies the analytics requirements: every product team needs constantly updated and specially tailored metrics which often combine product specific data with company wide data.
Having a centralized data team does not scale in this setting as it becomes the bottleneck between data producers and data consumers.
We created a Manifesto of seven principles which break with traditional separation of roles and show a path how to deal with distributed data in a federal and scalable fashion. This leads to DataDev: a culture shift similar to DevOps in which application developers own their data and take over responsibilities for data & analytics.
