Data Mesh is an emerging architectural paradigm for big data that addresses the challenges inherent in the data lake and data warehouse approaches. Rather than centralising data, data meshes connect distributed datasets. And data ownership and governance are federated, with data quality maintained by the domain owners who understand the data best. It is a self-service paradigm, with data shared as a product for others to self-serve and consume.
Sounds like a panacea, doesn’t it? But how easy will it be for government departments to adopt it?
