#062: What is Data Mesh? Explained

Apr 24, 2024

Over the last few years a new buzzword has entered the data world - Data Mesh.

Just a simple Google search returns tons of articles on what it is, the key principles & how to use it.

Tools are even incorporating this concept directly into the product.


Yet despite the hype, I've also yet to see it fully implemented at a company exactly as described.

But that doesn't mean it's not an important trend to follow or one to simply brush off.


While a lot of this is still being played out in real time, in this week's video I want to help you better understand what's behind this idea of a "Data Mesh".

That way you can feel more confident talking about it and can decide if it makes sense to implement at your own company.
