In this episode, Scott and Zhamak covered the misconception many have when she says “leave the data where it is” – it’s about leaving the ownership with those who should have it, not leaving the data in the source system. If you only do source system, all you have is current state, so your data isn’t even immutable or bi-temporal! They also discussed the need to be smarter about processing data – should it be at the source or should it be on query? There isn’t a universal approach but we also shouldn’t have to move the data around just to process it, bring the processing to the data. Lastly, we need systems to get smarter around efficient processing. We have far too much manual work on making data processing efficient.
