Largest Data Engineering Survey Reports on Adoption of Modern Data Stack Tools
Airbyte, creators of the fastest-growing open-source data integration platform, today made available results of the biggest data engineering survey in the market which provides insights into the latest trends, tools, and practices in data engineering - especially adoption of tools in the modern data stack.
Its first worldwide State of Data survey displays results in an interactive format so that anyone can drill further into the information using filters to see, for example, adoption patterns by organization size. There were 886 respondents in the survey - the largest related to data engineering - that was fairly evenly distributed by geography (North America, Europe, and Asia), as well as company size, and years of experience working. The primary job title was data engineer at 38%, another 20% in management positions, and 11% software engineers. Analytics engineer, data analyst, and data scientist were around 5% apiece.
"In the past year, the data ecosystem has been evolving rapidly, so this research of the user community is a way to see the signal through the noise in the modern data stack," said John Lafleur, co-founder and chief operating officer, Airbyte. "New options are introduced every month, so this research is a way for us to take a step back and understand what the community is using and feeling excited about."
Noteworthy findings include the following.
Here is what some data engineering influencers said about the State of Data survey:
"The data engineering community stands out for its open-mindedness and collaborative spirit. Every day, I'm impressed by how we've created a culture of learning and sharing that transcends organizational boundaries and geographical constraints." Ananth Packkildurai, editor, Data Engineering Weekly
"Amazing Data Engineering survey! I highly recommend checking out the insights into the adoption of engineering tools from Data Ingestion, transformation to reverse ETL and Data Catalogs. That section was my highlight. Congratulations to Airbyte for leading the Data Ingestion section." Andreas Kretz, founder of Learn Data Engineering
"I am particularly happy to see the growth of Data Quality tools that have evolved for good. This signals maturity is coming along. It's not a shocker to me Airbyte still leading the way for the Data Ingestion Layer." From Ravit Jain, founder & host of The Ravit Show
