Data Mesh

A data mesh is a decentralized data architecture that organizes data by a specific business domain—for example, marketing, sales, customer service, and more—providing more ownership to the producers of a given dataset. The producers’ understanding of the domain data positions them to set data governance policies focused on documentation, quality, and access. This, in turn, enables self-service use across an organization. While this federated approach eliminates many operational bottlenecks associated with centralized, monolithic systems, it doesn't necessarily mean that you can't use traditional storage systems, like data lakes or data warehouses. It just means that their use has shifted from a single, centralized data platform to multiple decentralized data repositories.
