A conversation with Gilead Sciences and Saxo Group

Watch Data Mesh in Action

Data Mesh has been the hot topic of conversation across the data community for quite some time now, and while some debate if it’s yet another buzzword created by consulting companies, many have learned and recognize that it's not about the technology, but the cultural shift in ways of working that truly sets organizations to a path of readiness to innovate and leverage their data at a much faster pace.

 

Regardless of what side you fall on - skeptic or eager follower - all are interested to hear from organizations that have actually started on their Data Mesh journey.

Watch Adopting Data Mesh: Lessons learned and critical success factors

 

Does your organization aspire to have a data-driven culture? Are you in the middle of a cloud migration?

 

In this session, Thoughtworks, a leader in the data space, and Gilead, an early Data Mesh adopter, examine how Data Mesh is helping organizations along their journey to become more data-driven.

 

Gilead has a strong experimentation culture, established people practices and innovative technology thought leadership, but like many enterprises they faced numerous challenges adopting the Data Mesh approach to deliver data-driven value at scale. Hear about Gilead’s journey to date, including their data management landscape and how data mesh is enabling a data-driven culture.

 

Thoughtworks also shares lessons learned, best practices, and critical success factors from their experience implementing data mesh across industries, such as European investment bank, Saxo Bank, who has adopted the Data Mesh concept. We end with a framework for CDOs to navigate the business landscape.
