1 PM | Data Mesh - Scalable Data Architecture

Running time: 1:00 – 1:35 PM

 

Organizations have long leveraged centralized data teams to design and build analytic data solutions such as data lakes and data warehouses. As these data platforms expand in scope and usage, these centralized teams often reach a point where they can no longer keep pace with business needs.

 

Data Mesh is a new approach that directly addresses this challenge. It represents a paradigm shift away from legacy best practices and established enterprise data architecture frameworks, and towards federating data product development across business domains.

As part of this presentation, we aim to provide organizations with:

  • A fundamental understanding of Data Mesh concepts and value proposition
  • Benefits the Data Mesh has brought to Mission Lane
  • How to navigate the “people” aspect of making a shift to Data Mesh Architecture

Rick Vasko | Data Architect at Impact Makers

Mike Carpenter | Data Steward + Reporting Specialist at Mission Lane

along with the myriad of other state laws percolating. This session will also delve deep into developing
a battle plan for future-proofing against the onslaught of new privacy regulations nationwide.

About the Event

In March of this year, Virginia signed into law the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA) joining California (CCPA) as the second state to enact comprehensive data privacy legislation. Other states are also working on their own privacy laws. Data Privacy legislation means more than just legal and business challenges for corporations, it means empowering the consumer to have more access and control over their data which is a valuable commodity.

In this rvatech/Data Summit series’ event, come and join the discussion as business leaders share their thoughts on what the recent Data Privacy legislation means for the business community as well as for you, the consumer.
