Gilbane Advisor 9-22-21 — No-code, data stacks, OpenMetadata

This week we have articles from Louise de Leyritz and Suresh Srinivas. News comes from RWS Language Weaver and ServiceNow, Adobe, Progress, and Kentico.


Opinion / Analysis

What If … you had to build a data stack with no-code tools?

Well, not only with no-code tools. Louise de Leyritz’s title is usefully clicky in that it will get you thinking about how no-code tools can contribute to building a modern data stack. In particular, support for data democratization — providing a way for non-technical parts of your organization to gain operational access to critical data. The article looks at the pros and cons, and suggests an appropriate set of no-code tools to consider for data science / machine learning.

Announcing OpenMetadata

Metadata a a critical component for lots of corporate applications, but how do you manage it in a world of data lakes and hybrid data stacks that need to be shared across different functions? Suresh Srinivas is well placed to tackle this problem having done so at Uber. But he is proposing an open source approach that goes beyond a centralized Metadata Lake to a Metadata Graph. Very interesting.
