Big data was supposed to transform the enterprise. Existing data architectures, however, have shortcomings that prevent them from delivering the promised business value.

Thoughtworks has developed just such a domain-driven approach rooted in organizational change called the data mesh. It represents a true paradigm shift — and an opportunity to successfully create a data-driven organization and unlock business value from data.
