Data and engineering software are overlapping fields that work closely. While many careers within these fields have some common routes, they each have their own areas of expertise that differentiate them from each other.

To help manage large amounts of data and information in a way that is manageable, companies require experts who can handle the job of preparing and collecting it for further analysis. These experts are known as data engineers. They use programming languages to create systems that gather data and convert it into formats suitable for other specialists in data – like data scientists and business intelligence (BI) developers.

As they build their pipelines Data engineers look at the way data is modelled, stored, secured and encoded. They might also suggest or implement methods to improve reliability efficiency, quality, and efficiency. They can, for example assist users to seamlessly merge data by adding consistent IDs.

After their ETL is complete, data engineers often build applications to aid others leverage the company’s information. This can include creating visualizations that highlight important data points such as customer and employee trends as well as product performance. They also design and manage data platforms that employees can access through APIs or web-based interfaces, such as a dashboard.

To do this it is necessary to be able to operate a variety of databases and storage technologies. They might, for example, use SQL to query relational databases and a tool like Python for more powerful and flexible ETL processes. They could also set up the NoSQL data store like MongoDB that provides an incredibly flexible approach to document-based data management.
