We all know the importance of anaytics and events documentation for a product. At my current company, the PM and engineering team can pass any events that can be published in our analytics tool ASAP. This has led to often seeing people leading to look at the wrong event or property and less confidence in the quality of events and data we are tracking.
To solve this problem, our data team have come up with the following proposed workflow.
1. Any time a new event or event property needs to be added to anaytics tool, PM / EM must inform the data team.
2. Data team will approve the event, add it to the event data dictionary. Their SLA to complete this task is 1 week depending on the request.
I want to find a optimised solution where engineers can still be able to push the event directly to analytics tool. Definitely, there should be standard procedures that must be followed but adding a sign off process where data team will push an event may result in decrease in team's productivity. IMHO, the sqauds should be able to function automously to produce better outcomes.
Any suggestions that can help to find the middle ground will be really appreciated.
