Modernizing Analytics Architectures with Data Mesh & Semantic Layer

Date and Time

Wed, Oct 19, 2022


The data mesh is a trending approach to building a decentralized data architecture by leveraging a domain-oriented, self-service design. For this approach to work, the semantic layer emerged as a fundamental concept to support data model sharing, collaboration, and ownership. You will learn how a semantic layer fits into a modern analytics architecture by understanding its relationship to the data mesh.

This session will explain how central data teams can define common models and definitions with a semantic layer, and allows users to browse the mesh of related data products.

Attend this session to learn about:

  • The role of a data mesh in the modern cloud architecture
  • A semantic layer as a binding agent for a data mesh
  • Building modern cloud architecture following modern paradigms
