Key thinking and insights

The more I have read and heard about the data mesh, the more I can see the evolution of the modern data stack to a more commercially minded model. Decentralising data with a specific domain driven purpose will help shape value and drive ROI for enterprises. The more you can link data to end users, the more it will allow teams to focus on commercially driven results.

As data increases with volume and speed, complexity will increase. Approaches like Data Mesh are a perfect way to keep data in a business-minded framework while handling complexity easily.
