An introduction to Data Mesh | Zhamak Dehghani

About This Video

Zhamak Dehghani, Director, Emerging Technologies, North America at Thoughtworks hosts a workshop on ‘An introduction to Data Mesh: a paradigm shift in analytical data management’ in where Zhamak shares her observations on the failure modes of a centralized paradigm of a data lake, and its predecessor data warehouse. She introduces Data Mesh, a paradigm shift in big data management that draws from modern distributed architecture: considering domains as the first class concern, applying self-sovereignty to distribute the ownership of data, applying platform thinking to create self-serve data infrastructure, and treating data as a product.
