Data Science and Dev Ops teams live on opposite sides of a wall in most organizations. Despite the separation, these teams should work together to develop a coherent process to release analytic products, support those products and maintain sanity. We propose an institutional capability, ‘Analytic Operations’, to support data-driven processes within lines-of-business. We hope to share lessons learned practicing Analytic Ops and present a set of best practices for Analytic Ops teams. We also demo open source tools that reduce frictions between Data Science and Ops/Deployment teams.
