Dominik Benz: A Data Mesh Primer: Why federation & self-service infrastructure matters
Data Mesh as analytical Data Architecture is receiving a lot of attention these days. As a basis for the two main talks, we will briefly summarize the key aspects of the Data mesh paradigm. We will close by outlining why Data Federation and Self-service Data Infrastructure are two key components based on our project experience.
Andy Mott: Starburst: A Data Federation Layer for Data Mesh landscapes
Starburst is the analytics engine for all your data. We unlock the value of distributed data by making it fast and easy to access, no matter where it lives. The capabilities that Starburst provides enable organisations to adopt a Data Mesh approach to support their Enterprise Data Strategy. In this discussion we will cover how these capabilities support data product thinking, domain autonomy and incentivisation strategies.
Sönke Liebau: Data Mesh Infrastructure as a Service with Stackable
Cloud-native concepts and technologies such as containerization and Kubernetes enable companies to orchestrate modern data platforms with open source software. This architecture especially lends itself to implementing self-service data infrastructure in a decentralized data mesh. In this talk we’ll show how the Stackable Data Platform can support this approach.
Dr. Dominik Benz has been supporting companies implementing data platforms and architectures for many years. As inovex‘ head of data engineering he combines technological and organizational aspects with his knowledge of analytic approaches.
