It is a well-known fact that engineering time is one of your company's most valuable resources—and it is up to you, as product teams, to use it wisely.

Any time the engineers spend developing something outside of your core competencies and catering to diverse ops teams’ requests is time away from product development.

So what happens when Ops teams end up reaching out to data and engineering teams with endless requests?

It looks somewhat like this:

Every product team's dilemma

Given the diversity of requests, it can take up a significant bandwidth of the engineering and data team to cater to each and every one of them within a stipulated time.

It could mean building data pipelines, working on complex data sets, setting up cron jobs, building metrics from scratch, setting up 100s of dashboards etc, which require specific tools, know-how, and skills.

This means that the:

  • Operations teams have no way to find out what is happening on the ground and when they happen until their dependencies with the data team are resolved.
  • Data teams rely on engineering teams to build the required tooling

And most importantly engineering teams end up devoting considerable time to gathering requirements and mapping requirements to components for ad hoc requests instead of doing high-leverage product work.

This brings us to our most important questions,

  1. How do we empower our Ops teams across the company to do their best work ?
  2. How do we do so without investing in a team of engineers and analysts to build a tool from scratch?
