building analytic stack

5 things I've learned from building analytics stacks at J.P. Morgan and Fivetran


I started my career as an options trader at J.P. Morgan and then moved on to build their first modern data stack. Currently, I am a principal analytics leader at Fivetran, an up-and-coming market leader in data integration. Along the way, I've had to learn how to build complex information systems the hard way. Today, I want to share some best practices I've picked up that will help you succeed. The modern data stack is a set of cloud-native data tools centered around automation, lowered costs, and ease-of-use to end users throughout the lifecycle of data management.
