Data Mesh: Beyond the Data Lake


Duration: 50 mins
Neal Ford
Software Architect, ThoughtWorks

While modern architectures like microservices have take the world by storm, the data world seems left behind. The world gradually migrated away from data warehouses, with too much structure, to data lakes, which had too little structure, and a host of other headaches. Applying some of the same reuse patterns underlying service mesh, Data Mesh is a new paradigm for handling data in highly distributed environments, addressing nagging issues like data quality, applicability, PII, and so on, while still enjoining the advantages of distributed teams and event-driven architectures. This talk highlights the innovations ThoughtWorks is pursuing for this modern perspective on data.
