Prophecy: Implement Data Mesh with Self-Serve

Published on

Get business teams started with a self-serve platform to build data products with speed, standards & quality on the Lakehouse 

Data mesh is fundamentally about putting more of the data into the hands of domain experts who understand the data, instead of completely relying on a single data platform team to clean, process, combine and summarize data for every domain team.

However, the Data Mesh is described in a very abstract way in the literature with little practical guidance. 

In this whitepaper, we focus on a practical approach to implementing the data mesh with a self-serve platform, the benefits, and a step-by-step guide to achieve this. It includes:

  • A Practical Data Mesh that can be implemented
  • What such a Data Mesh in Action looks like - the players, products and interactions
  • A step-by-step guide on how to implement a Data Mesh starting with the first domain team. This includes practical issues that come up, and guidance to resolve these
  • How to expand data-mesh to more teams
