Zingg, Data Meshes, Dagster; ThDPTh #53

Three Data Point Thursday
Zingg, Data Meshes, Dagster; ThDPTh #53
By Sven Balnojan  • Issue #59 • View online
Thanks to Prukalpa Sankar, co-founder of Atlan, I stumbled over an article about data meshes which fits very well into what I’m currently working on in a book I am co-authoring (ping! Data Mesh in Action is in early access).
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.
- Nobody cares about data pipelines. Dagster, the data orchestrator puts the real thing into focus, the data asset. And thus moves away from the idea that the “data pipeline” itself has any kind of value. This is a very welcome move, because almost all tools in this space still have the focus on the “transformation” or the “pipeline”, like dbt, prefect, and many others.
You might not be ready for the data mesh. I do think that every company will at some point in time need to switch to a data mesh. But I also share the opinion that you might simply not have a good case right now for it, depending on your company context.
Start-Ups have a unique chance to start a data mesh from day 0. However, I do think that start-ups have a unique chance to start off right, being data-decentralized from day 0, and thereby become more data-driven than the incumbents in their markets.
Zingg and entity resolution becomes interesting. Zingg is a tool that takes the load off my shoulders if I want to match duplicates in my data sets. Better, in the future, Zingg might scale to become better at its job, the more customers the company has.
