- We need API-first technologies in data. Not just offering APIs but being able to integrate seamlessly with each other via API. We have that in software but it’s been a long-time coming in data. If we want an actual modern data stack, we need to have tooling providers make a real change.
- Simple made easy: we need to make things simple for data product development and consumption. It’s not simplistic but it removes unnecessary complexities.
- Overall, there is such a trend in data where people aren’t building things that remove toil – there is this assumption of increasing complexity of use cases but so much of the work is not that complicated. We need to make it so most people can do most of the work relatively easily without making it overly simplistic – easier said than done of course.
