DATA MESH is a relatively new concept that became one of the fastest-growing trends during 2020. It extends the paradigm shift that was introduced by the microservices architectures and applies it to data architectures, enabling agile and scalable analytics and machine learning or artificial intelligence.
DATA MESH provides an alternative to the “centralized” organizational and architectural pattern of the data lake with a distributed and decentralized architecture designed to help enterprises to:
- Enable agility and business scalability
- Reduce the time-to-market of the business initiatives
- Lower maintenance costs
- Allow a fair and transparent internal cost allocation.
Even in a rapidly evolving scenario, we have already developed a concrete experience with Data Mesh projects, that we are sharing in the following contents.
