So much of what we do in the automation space revolves around data, and the systems and processes where data is created and stored. Connectivity to timely and consistent data is paramount in any automation environment. One of the most common disruptors we see to integrations and automations is when users make changes to an application’s database schema without proper documentation or approval. The effect wreaks havoc on business processes that result in inconsistencies and discrepancies in the data across systems. This is called “Schema Drift.”
The most common effects of schema drift are data quality issues, data loss, and difficulties in data management and analysis. Resolving schema drift takes time and resources away from doing other mission critical work.
