The Rise of Data Downtime: Making Observability a Pillar of your Data Lake – Monte Carlo Data

Ever had your CEO look at a report and say the numbers look way off? Has a customer ever called out incorrect data in one of your product dashboards? If this sounds familiar, data reliability should be the cornerstone of your data engineering strategy.

We’ll discuss why data downtime matters to building a better data lake and tactics best-in-class organizations use to address it – including org structure, culture, and technology.
