Data Mesh is an innovative architecture for collecting, managing, and delivering enterprise data. At its foundation is the notion that “domains” (functional units within a business, government agency, or service branch) should be able to define and control, and have responsibility for governance over their own data products—without relying on centralized IT or data analytics teams.
The Data Mesh Concept is based on four principles:
- decentralized, domain-based data ownership;
- data delivered as a product;
- data use via a self-service platform; and
- federated data governance.
