What is Data Mesh?

"A decentralized, sociotechnical approach to share, access, and manage analytical data in complex and
large-scale environments within or across organisations” (Zhamak Dehghani, 2021).

Data Mesh Guiding Principles

  • Principle of Domain ownership

  • Principle of self serve data platforms

  • Principle of data as a product

  • Principle of federated computational governance


Principle of domain ownership

Data mesh is a decentralized approach where the responsibility of design, build and management of data products lies with the business domains closest to the data. Individual domains are responsible for providing the truths of their business.


Principle of self serve data platforms

The platform must enable multiple domain teams to build, share and use data products in an autonomous way. The platform must support interoperability between different technologies and must not require propriety specialization of a technology vendor which
is unscalable at an enterprise level


Principle of data as a product

Data provided by domains is treated as a product with the aim of providing data which is valuable and usable for data consumers. This involves application of product thinking in the design of data products and defining baseline characteristics that apply to data products.


Principle of federated
computational governance

A federated governance model creates an equilibrium between local and global optimization, giving autonomy to domains but maintaining global interoperability.
Computational governance involves automation of instructions that assure data is secure, compliant and usable.

Expert-led implementation

We understand the importance of promoting data
democratization, thus, we enable users at all levels
of the organization to access and leverage data
independently. By doing so, we empower businesses
with agility and autonomy, allowing different teams
to take ownership of their data domains and drive
decision-making with autonomy.
