Barr Moses | #TrueDataOps Podcast Ep.14

Episode 14 of the #TrueDataOps podcast welcomed Barr Moses, Data Observability pioneer, CEO, and co-founder of Monte Carlo, who joined host Kent ‘The Data Warrior’ Graziano to discuss all things data and DataOps. “We can’t afford to ignore the implications of bad data - and this is where data observability comes in.
