The Role of DataOps in a Data Mesh Architecture
Hot off the press – a new post discussing two of today’s hottest topics – #DataMesh and #DataOps.
Data Mesh is a decentralized architecture that organizes data by specific business domains and teams, leveraging a self-service approach. It’s designed to provide greater ownership and responsibility to Data Product teams and, it is hoped, more effective outputs in a timely manner.
Data mesh is founded on four pillars:
- Empowered domain ownership – letting the experts who know the data best do their jobs.
- Cross organizational transport – enabling consumption through data products.
- Self-service analytical platform – reducing costs, improving agility.
- Federated governance – the ‘glue’ that holds the process together, enabling interoperability and compliance.
Is DataOps simply an enabler for more sophisticated design patterns like Data Mesh? If we carry on with DevOps thinking – considering how the involvement of end users in a product lifecycle went from passive to truly active, one starts to see that it’s more than that.
