Data Mesh principles have brought data products to the forefront of data architecture discussions. However, due to the variety of applications and the vast technology landscape, it is hard to bring those principles into practice.
Data products also provide a new lens to think about data ownership, encapsulation, data sharing, and even team structures across an organization.
In this presentation, we will bring insights based on our experience implementing data products and Data Mesh principles in different organizations, covering topics such as:
- What constitutes a data product and what are the different types of data products
- How data products support data architecture at different levels, from inside an application all the way up to an enterprise level
- Skills and team topologies to support data product thinking
- The data platform capabilities required to build an operating model based around data product teams
