Data Mesh

Data Mesh essentially refers to the concept of breaking down data lakes and siloes into smaller, more decentralized portions. Data Mesh seeks to address the shortcomings associated with traditional platform architecture that resulted in the creation of centralized data lakes or warehouses. Efficient data mesh implementation provides the benefits of radically decreasing lead times and giving business domains the ability to quickly prioritize and make decisions that are relevant to them. A study by Trainz found that 40% of the digital champions (companies that have successfully transformed digitally) have full management alignment, which is critical for the success of data mesh.
