The data ecosystem is undergoing a rapid transition. Flexible pricing models and scalability have made it easy for every company to own and control their own data, giving rise to the “modern data ecosystem.” Underpinning this is the cloud data warehouse, now becoming the gravity well for all business data and the central hub connecting to tools that ingest, transform, and prepare data to and from the cloud. 

The evolution of the data stack has given rise to the “modern data team.” This is a shift in organizational structure with the “analytics engineer” at its center. But, what is the modern data team? How has the modern data ecosystem, where companies fully own their data stack, shift organizational structure? What are the key changes that businesses need to make to create a successful data-driven company? Will we finally see data coming out of silos and be democratized across an organization? 

In this webinar, Jeremy Levy, CEO of Indicative, sits down with David Krevitt from dbt and Tejas Manohar from Hightouch to discuss the rise of the modern data team and what it means for organizations. 

This webinar will cover:

  • How the modern data stack is ushering in the democratization of data across the organization
  • How to get teams invested in becoming data-centric
  • New pain points, opportunities, roles and use cases that will emerge with the rise of the modern data team
