Presentation: From data mess to Data Mesh: a practical application
We’re automating away the tedious parts of web app development. Standardizing our infrastructure so our teams can focus on building the fun stuff while we handle the rest and empowering our product owners with a robust data discovery platform.
In this talk we’ll be discussing our experiences building a self-serve data mesh platform. Focusing on devops friendly processes that perform real time code analysis, dynamic cloud provisioning, cataloging of data models and integrating with popular domain modeling software. Our data mesh supports self guided discovery for the non technical; while powering domain specific custom templates to allow for rapid application development with built in data governance.
