“Is this dashboard broken?”
“Are these numbers right?”
“Why aren't the accounts up-to-date?”
You check the dashboard to see if it looks wrong, but lack enough context. You start moving upstream, system after system, but it's difficult to find the metadata and logs that you need. Pour yourself a cup of coffee, because this is going to be a while.
As a data engineer, your company relies on you to provide timely and correct data. But things inevitably break. Using today’s tools, it’s hard to know when things break, understand how this impacts other systems, and debug root causes.
This was the state of software engineering before observability tools like Datadog become a part of the modern software engineering stack.
We're building Metaplane because we believe data engineers deserve these same tools.
