The 2021 LinkedIn Series: FirstMark Capital's Matt Turck Did It Again

Matt Turck at FirstMark Capital did it again! And he went way deep. Like, really really deep.


For example, this year's write-up had around 10 thousand words, while last years came in just under 4 thousand.


Clearly, heaps of inspiring #ecosystem developments in 2021, but also mountains of capital piling into red hot teams building game-changing solutions.


My team and I especially liked the new categories:


In Infrastructure:

-       Reverse ETL

-       Data Observability

-       Privacy & Security


Note: We see the latter, especially security solutions, exploding in the coming 3-5 years.


In Analytics:

-       Data Catalogs & Discovery

-       Augmented Analytics

-       Metrics Stores

-       Query Engines


Note: NLG, or Natural Language Generation, which sits in Augmented Analytics, is a big one to watch. An especially super exciting area.

In Machine Learning and AI:

-       Model Building

-       Feature Stores

-       Deployment and Production


Note: I'm personally curious to learn more about Feature Stores, but it's the Deployment and Production of ML models that I'm most excited about.


In Open Source:

-       Format

-       Orchestration

-       Data Quality & Observability


Note: I'm a luddite when it comes to open source. Lots to learn here.


And these key trends for 2021 are in line with what we're seeing flow via the MeasureMatch marketplace:


-       The data mesh

-       A busy year for DataOps

-       It’s time for real time

-       Metrics stores

-       Reverse ETL

-       Data sharing

And then book a pro via the MeasureMatch marketplace 💪 to make these systems, and the data, sing!
