About this episode

“What is a data mesh?” It’s one of the most frequently asked questions on this podcast, and is almost a microcosm for data and analytics as a whole. It may be the next big thing. It may be yet another passing fad in architectural design. We compared and contrasted it with data fabric in Episode 32 and spoke with Zhamak Dehghani, the founder of the data mesh paradigm in Episode 44. We even hosted a special panel discussion dedicated to data mesh. 

After all these discussions, we are still trying to figure out what it is. So, we’re settling this the only way we know how: a good old-fashioned debate. Only one side can win.

  • The definitive(ish) definition of data mesh
