Data Mesh is fast emerging as a serious architecture pattern to look for in the field of data. I will stop after saying ‘field of data’ rather than extending the ‘data’ to data science, data engineering, data warehouse, and all such kinds of buzz words. We in IT have the habit of creating buzzwords and then following them. I just want to focus on something other than just the buzzword. The reason for this is Data Mesh has the potential to completely change the way we handle and look at our data. This will have an impact on all areas where data is the critical element.
Report Card For Current Level of Data
