Welcome to The Data Stack Show prequel where we replay a snippet from the show we just recorded. Kostas, are you ready to give people a sneak peek? Let’s do it. Alright, Kostas, one of my big takeaways is that I’m so glad to finally hear about a marketing tool that, as Jason described, it, is a good citizen on either end of the data pipeline, both in terms of ingestion and and pushing data back in, because that simple challenge, with so many marketing tools is their terminal destinations, which has been just a huge pain point for me over the years, specifically in terms of data infrastructure. That was great. And I’m super excited to hear that kind of thinking is being done, you know, even for tools that are built specifically for marketers.

Yeah, I’ll keep the last part of the conversation that we had about real time and streaming data. And that this is, let’s say, the next frontier of innovation when it comes like to data infrastructure for marketeers. And in a way also, let’s say, like, the next year for the data infrastructure out there, right, like, because, as you said, the technology is not there yet, like, yeah, we can ingest real time data into the data warehouse, but how we do it, how fast we do it, how hard it is to do it, and what kind of tools we have to work with real time data. Still has like a lot of springs for improvement. So I’ll keep that and I’ll be looking around to see how the industry is doing to address ourselves.
