Innovative data architectures have been gaining traction as businesses are modernising their Data platforms to become more data-driven organisations; Data Mesh is a key component of their path towards data democratisation and business agility.
Business leaders who have recognised this are shifting to “data as product” and they are building data platforms that not only address immediate constraints of the old technology stack and meet immediate business requirements, but also reduce time to market, improve data governance and future-proof the business.
In this whitepaper, we introduce the differentiating concepts of the data mesh architecture, covering the relationship and differences with other data architectures. We then answer the question “why a data mesh?”, explaining how organisations who are interested in the data mesh can transition to it.
Finally, we share the story of how we’ve worked with our client, Showpad, helping them to migrate to a modern data mesh architecture and realise its benefits.
