About the Webinar

Data Mesh is a trending approach to building a decentralized data architecture by leveraging a domain-oriented, self-service design. However, the pure definition of Data Mesh lacks a center of excellence or central data team and doesn’t address the need for a common approach for sharing data products across teams. The semantic layer is emerging as a key component to supporting a Hub and Spoke style of organizing data teams by introducing data model sharing, collaboration, and distributed ownership controls.

This session will explain how data teams can define common models and definitions with a semantic layer to decentralize analytics product creation using a Hub and Spoke architecture.

Attend this session to learn about:

  • The role of a Data Mesh in the modern cloud architecture.
  • How a semantic layer can serve as the binding agent to support decentralization.
  • How to drive self service with consistency and control.
