About this event

► "Implementing Data Mesh on Google Cloud: A Practical Guide" by Steve Loh

Let's uncover the essential building blocks of implementing data mesh on Google Cloud. We'll inspect the architectural principles of data mesh, explore the design process, and discuss best practices for using services like BigQuery, Dataplex, and Looker. You'll walk away with a clear understanding of how to implement a data mesh that empowers business agility while democratizing data on Google Cloud.

► "Engineering a Data Mesh Platform for an eco-system across organisations" by Tom De Wolf

ACA Group has implemented Data Mesh Platform within the Flemish Cultural Sector in collaboration with the Flemish Department of Culture, Youth and Media (CJM) and publiq. Instead of supporting a single organization, the challenge here was to support a whole eco-system of teams across many organisations within the cultural sector. In this talk we will explain why a Data Mesh solution was fit-for-purpose for enabling a data-driven digital transformation in the sector. As an example, we will dive into some meshes of data products and data use cases. On the technical side, a cloud-native platform engineering architecture was envisioned, designed, implemented and evangelised. After the talk, the audience will have insight into this real-world data mesh case. This Data Mesh Platform received the Flanders Digital Award 2023 for Best Digital Transformation Project.
