Data Mesh Learning – Interview with The Data Warrior

Last week I had the privilege of being interviewed by Nick Heudecker (former Gartner analyst and current Senior Director at Cribl) for the Data Mesh Learning Community. In our interview, we covered the idea of empowering business domains to really own and manage their data via things like templates and a center of excellence, not to just give them the responsibility of owning their data and leaving them to figure the rest out on their own. We also discussed the need for organizations to focus on investing in growing a data culture, not just investing in the newest cloud based tooling. Really, how do we lower the barriers to accessing, sharing, and leveraging data and get people to really think about data-as-a-product.

Like Agile before it, Data Mesh is as much about changing the way an organization thinks and works as it is about technology. I argue that the people and organization aspects of adopting a data mesh approach are more important than the technology aspects. Without the right approach, the best technology (like Snowflake), is not going to solve your organization’s data problems.

See the full interview here:

So what do you think about all this data mesh stuff?

Cheers!

Since you are on this blog, I assume that means you are “following” me in that techie, non-stalker sort of way. 😉

That being the case you are aware of my tenure for the last 5+ years at the hottest data-focused software company in the world – Snowflake. And you know I have produced a lot of content (really – A LOT!). Everything from blogs to ebooks to videos to podcasts – in addition to my usual array of industry and Snowflake sponsored webinars and talks.

But if, like me, you have consumed so much content in the last year or so, you have probably lost track of some of it, right?

Well if you are trying to find something you saw me do (or tweet about doing) but just can’t remember what it was (or when or where) and you want to find it but don’t want to sift through the hundreds of Google search results or the thousands of social media posts I have done, look no further!

I decided to make it easier for you (and me frankly) by putting a pretty comprehensive list together on a permanent page here on my site.

I broke it up into videos/Podcasts, Thought Leader articles, ebooks, and blogs and have included links to all of these so you can quickly get to the content you need when you need it.

So check it out and bookmark the page now, before you forget or lose track of this post too. 🙂

You’re welcome.
