The use of Data Mesh has become a popular approach in managing and scaling data across organisations. It is a decentralised approach that emphasizes the autonomy and ownership of data by domain experts. However, adopting a Data Mesh is not always the right approach for every organisation. In this blog post, we will explore when to use a Data Mesh from the C-suite’s point of view.

Data Mesh is an approach to data management that prioritises data decentralisation, data as a product, and domain-driven ownership of data. It emphasises the creation of data products that can be shared across the organisation, enabling cross-functional teams to work with the data they need in a self-serve manner.
