What Is Data Mesh?

A paradigm shift in how organizations manage and utilize their data assets is referred to as data mesh. Its goal is to emphasize decentralization, autonomy, and democratization of data, thereby enabling businesses to modernize their operations and achieve technology excellence.


4 Key Principles of Data Mesh

  1. Domain-oriented decentralized data ownership: Data is treated as a product owned by individual domains or teams within an organization.
  2. Self-serve data infrastructure: Each domain or team manages its own data infrastructure with modern tools and technologies.
  3. Federated computational governance: Instead of relying on a centralized data team, governance is distributed across domains to reduce bottlenecks.
  4. Product thinking and cross-functional collaboration: Data is viewed as a product that serves specific business needs.
