"Data is the new oil" is a claim that is often made, pointing to the strategic importance data can have in enabling business success. However, the comparison is also true in another aspect: raw data, like raw oil, is quite useless. Just like raw oil, it needs to be refined, processed and distributed in a way that it supports important use cases before it can actually be of value. Designing, implementing and improving such pipelines, is what data engineering is all about.
