Data Mesh is a paradigm shift in big analytical data management that addresses some of the limitations of the past paradigms, data warehousing and data lake. Data Mesh is founded in four principles: "domain-driven ownership of data", "data as a product", "self-serve data platform" and a "federated computational governance".
In this talk Danilo and Zhamak explore the principle of "domain-driven ownership of data" and why it is a foundational pillar for data mesh. They will share approaches to tackle some of the common hard problems around identifying domain boundaries, and how to contrast data mesh with a more traditional centralized approach to master data management. Finally, they will discuss ways of starting on the transformation journey towards a domain-driven approach to data ownership.
Director of Emerging Technologies, Thoughtworks, North America
Zhamak Dehghani works with Thoughtworks as the director of emerging technologies in North America, with a focus on distributed systems and big data architecture, with a deep passion for decentralized technology solutions - the foundations for democratization: data mesh, decentralized trust and identity, and networking protocols.
She founded the concept of Data Mesh in 2018, a paradigm shift in big data management toward data decentralization, and since has been evangelizing the concept with the wider industry.
She is a member of Thoughtworks Technology Advisory Board and contributes to the creation of Thoughtworks Technology Radar. Zhamak has worked as a technologist for over 20 years and has contributed to multiple patents in distributed computing communications, as well as embedded device technologies.
