Data comes in a varied range of different formats. It can be flat CSV, JSON, XML and even Excel files. It could be available by querying an API, a database or subscribing to a data stream. There are so many ways that data could be available, but to use your data, it needs to be integrated with your data platform.
To make Data Analytics and Data Science efficient, your data needs to be made available in a standardised format, removing the need to handle data differences in multiple software locations.
Data engineers focus on creating your data lake, ensuring that data is properly isolated and secured from each other and partitioned according to the most used access pattern for performance.
They need to adapt to the different complexities and nuances that each data source may come with.
