Hot off the press: Driving Data Quality with Data Contracts, by Andrew Jones



"A data contract is an agreed interface between the generators of data and its consumers. It sets the expectations around that data, defines how it should be governed and facilitates the explicit generation of quality data that meets the business requirements."


From Driving Data Quality with Data Contracts. A comprehensive guide to building reliable, trusted, and effective data platforms. By Andrew Jones. Packt Publishing, June 2023.


I've been exploring why contracts are a hard problem in distributed systems at the Book Club. In a not so far away land, (data) contracts seem to provide new opportunities to mitigate old challenges. In Jones' words: "The root cause of all these [data platform] problems is that this data was not built for consumption."
