Three Data Point Thursday
Kolibri Data Mesh; Mathematicians; Redash; ThDPTh #49
By Sven Balnojan  • Issue #54 • View online
I’ve been doing some more in-depth data mesh researching and — not yet published — writing lately.
Along the way, I found a second take on Kolibri Games’ data journey which I really enjoyed. Their journey is so amazingly lean and focused, I got inspired when I watched it.
Read about it below…
I’m Sven, I collect “Data Points” to help understand & shape the future, one powered by data.

Svens Thoughts
If you only have 30 seconds to spare, here is what I would consider actionable insights for investors, data leaders, and data company founders.
- Align your data strategy with your business strategy can mean creating more problems for your data world. Kolibri did exactly this deliberately and thereby increased their company value by a ton.
- The business world doesn’t need more mathematicians. The world needs more decisions that are made, and not more time spent on analyzing them.
- Redash is a cool BI tool for ELT workloads. Redash allows end-users to both dive deep as well as to join across data sources. This basically enabled end-users to (possibly) work on raw data, leaving the middle man out of the equation.
- Every 3rd party tool will need to be modified to your needs. Start doing that earlier than later, otherwise, you won’t get into the habit of doing so. The Redash Toolbelt is a nice little helper for one particular 3rd party tool called Redash.
