Data is at the center of everything we do. As each day passes, more and more of it is collected. With that, there’s a need to improve how we accept, store, and interpret it. What role do data pipelines play in the software profession? How are data pipelines designed? What are some common data pipeline challenges? These are just a few of the questions we address in our research.
In DZone’s 2022 Trend Report, "Data Pipelines: Ingestion, Warehousing, and Processing," we review the key components of a data pipeline, explore the differences between ETL, ELT, and reverse ETL, propose solutions to common data pipeline design challenges, dive into engineered decision intelligence, and provide an assessment on the best way to modernize testing with data synthesis. The goal of this Trend Report is to provide insights into and recommendations for the best ways to accept, store, and interpret data.
