Is the love of artisinal SQL the downfall of data teams?

The artisanal approach to SQL and the masterpiece culture in querying are not-so silent killer of many data teams. The self-view of many analysts and even data leaders is that writing long queries is an intellectual and technical pure form of analysis. However, if crafting a 200-something line SQL query takes hours or even days (a scenario all too familiar), it’s a sign that your data team is operating like artistic masters. Let’s face it, data teams don’t have royal sponsors to create masterpieces. Thinking Bauhaus is more fitting for cash-burn budgets that most data teams run on.

Avoiding Data Strategy Spaghetti: Be more like Hummus. Be Simple.

Analytics Fear of Missing Out (AFOMO) might be the reason your data strategy resembles a chaotic spaghetti-filled pasta bar, with many options and free-form combinations.

Why the Digital World Needs Operations

Operations is the often-overlooked hero of profitable growth. Antonia Landi and Elizabeth Press (myself) connected over the insight that operational excellence is the key to business success, be it in product, data, on the factory floor or the newsroom. Even creative agencies have processes. Ops and processes will become a passport to play, as legislators catch up with technology (NIS2, DORA as examples) and ISO 27001 becomes a standard business hygiene in many industries.
