Three Data Point Thursday
MeltanoLabs; Analyst Success; Federated Computational Governance; ThDPTh #45
By Sven Balnojan  • Issue #48 • View online
Some longer-form writing bug bit me this week. I for some reason ended up writing three big data points about MeltanoLabs, Federated Computational Governance, and response to Tristan Handys latest newsletter.
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.
- Federated Computational Governance is there to stay. The concept stemming from the data mesh paradigm will stay and will generate new business models and new challenges.
- Meltano launches MeltanoLabs, but isn’t thinking far enough. MeltanoLabs is another effort of Meltano to start building a platform, which they must do in some way. They are thinking deep and hard about that process but seem to not get to a point that will rival Airbyte, at least not in the platform building capabilities which are likely to be the deciding element in the data integration market.
- Different forces in the data integration market are analyzed below. There are a few different types of network effects in play in the data integration market, so I decided to take some time to map them out below, and you can do so too!
- There are three concrete items a data integration company will have to leverage to become the biggest platform. See below, and remember, in a network effect-driven market, there will only be one platform — the biggest one.
- Analysts should not measure themselves at all. Instead, IMHO the right way to measure analysts, just like a development team, is to measure the output of the decision-making unit. So to put it into other words: “If you’re an analyst in a product team, you’re successful if your product team is kicking ass.”
