Looking back at Starburst & data products at The Gartner Data & Analytics Summit

DataGalaxy has also recently attended The Gartner Data & Analytics Summit, a fantastic opportunity not only for data leaders to come together from around the world but also to share cutting-edge industry insights and trends as gathered by one of the world’s top data research agencies.

2024 was no different! In addition to the outstanding insights that come from attending conferences like these, this year’s Gartner Data & Analytics Summit hosted a special talk from Raj Madugula, Head of Consumer Data Products at Wells Fargo and Justin Borgman, Co-Founder and CEO at Starburst. Together, they shared their talk: “Data Products at Wells Fargo: Becoming Data-Driven while Bridging Legacy and Modern Technology.”

This conversation covered an overview of Starburst as an organization and how the company is transforming the future of data management at Wells Fargo to enable data product development with both newer and legacy data. Raj explains that Wells Fargo achieved this in four steps.

  • Federated datasets: Whether on the cloud infrastructure or through existing data assets within the company, federated data sets help to bridge the gap between where the data sets within our federated repositories to the data products. According to Raj, “The first and foremost thing to remember is ‘How do we really start creating those assets?’” The answer: Modern tech stack tools.
  • Data consumption as an abstraction: Abstraction limits the need for data movement, which can cause issues in governance. It’s important to use a tool like Starburst to help you make sense of all this in a way that works for your organization.
  • Unified tools: Using a next-generation unified tool set can help all members of your data teams, including Data Scientists, business intelligence, analytics, data discovery, and more! This step is all about bringing together tech and business, and that could often include using generative AI tools to help these teams label and classify their data to use as an asset.
  • Sample enablement areas: This step is about locating sample data to put steps 1 – 3 to the test, and make changes as needed to create your data products. For Wells Fargo, these steps were applied to create data products for marketing and offers management, insurance claims, telehealth, and risk analysis.
