In an era where data is the lifeblood of organizations, open source infrastructure management plays an important role in ensuring reliability and scalability. This session will explore the emerging concept of Data Mesh and its 4 main concepts: Domain ownership, Data as a product, Self-serve data platform and
Federated computational governance. I will discuss key concepts, open source tools, real-world use cases, and challenges associated with implementing Data Mesh principles in the realm of infrastructure management. By bridging the gap between Data Mesh innovation and practical infrastructure needs, this session aims to empower ConfigMgmtCamp attendees with valuable insights and actionable takeaways.
