The EDO2 system eliminates the need for hand-coding data ingestion, data pipelines and workflows that run on the Databricks engine, while providing built-in lineage, monitoring, auditability and governance required for enterprise data operations and orchestration. The beta rollout is planned for September, with general availability expected in November.
