The velocity at which businesses are moving today makes it critical that data products be as effective as possible in production. The recently published white paper, "Agile and Big Data: Sprinting to Business Insight," reveals that the combination of agile and big data tools is helping businesses put data products into the production environment more quickly. To achieve even greater speed, many businesses are using DevOps as well.

A DevOps approach enables the development team to get feedback from the operations team during the development process. This helps identify issues before they can crop up in production and it gives the two teams an opportunity to determine how issues will be addressed if they do arise in production. If a data product can make a positive difference to the business, getting it into production quickly is key. If a data product is deficient, resolving the problem quickly is equally critical. In either case, DevOps can make a critical difference.
