The lost Art of Data Modeling
Apr, 11, 2022

Data Modeling seems to have become a lost art amongst data engineers. What was once the primal part of the job of a data engineer seems to have been relegated to a secondary rank.

Shaping the data by developing an understanding of the underlying data and the business process going along with it doesn’t seem nearly as important these days as the ability to move data around.

In a large number of organizations, the role of a data engineer has been transformed from a data shaper to a data mover.

Data Engineering’s role shift

Data Engineering has been a fast-evolving role, at the same time rising in complexity as well as increasing its scope of impact. Different trends that are contributing to the evolution of the role are also contributing to its’ shift away from being data shaper role to a data mover role. Src M
