The first mile of data: Scalable data onboarding for developers

Noelle Festa

Posted 12/3/2022

Unprecedented volumes of data — customer data, product data, statistics, financials — are being shared between organizations every day in the form of “flat files.” But how do you guarantee secure and accurate transfer of data when the foundation is as primitive as a CSV?

The Wild West of Data is a place where sometimes the first name comes first and sometimes it comes last; where US postal codes may comprise 5 digits or 9 digits depending on who entered the data; where dimensions may be documented in metric or imperial units; and where the order and names of each of these columns may be spelled, designated and formatted in any number of perfectly legal and acceptable, yet maddeningly differing ways.

Join us on December 15th at 1pm EST for a free webinar and hear Eric Crane and Ashley Mulligan of Flatile discuss what dev teams need to consider to get a handle on the Wild West of Data, where rules and best practices are shot from the hip.

After more than a decade of experience across enterprise software, early stage startups, and scaling businesses, Eric Crane co-founded Flatfile with David Boskovic to solve the ubiquitous challenge of conducting a data transaction with a human in the loop. Flatfile has since enabled more than 1 million data onboardings across dozens of industry segments under Eric's leadership making him an undeniable expert in this space.

"Ask any developer and they will tell you: making heads or tails of flat files can take weeks or months — and that's before you even get to start working with the data." - Ashley Mulligan

In her role as both an Engineer and Head of Product Marketing, Ashley Mulligan understands that while the customer experience evolves over the course of product ownership, it is often the first mile of that journey that sets the tone for how a product will be used.
