Data Mesh is a decentralized approach to data architecture that aims to address the challenges faced by organizations in managing and processing data at scale. It introduces the concept of domain-oriented data ownership, where each domain or business unit within an organization is responsible for its own data products and infrastructure.
Data Mesh emphasizes the principles of self-serve data infrastructure, where domain experts have the autonomy to manage and control their own data pipelines, storage, and processing. This approach promotes agility, scalability, and ownership of data within the organization.
Data Mesh operates on the idea of data as a product, where each domain or business unit treats its data as a valuable asset. This involves defining data products, including their schema, metadata, and usage policies.
The data infrastructure in a Data Mesh environment comprises various components such as data lakes, data warehouses, data processing frameworks, and data governance tools. These components are managed by domain teams, who take responsibility for their own data pipelines, data quality, and data governance.
Data Mesh offers several benefits to organizations:
Data Mesh is applicable in various use cases, including:
