The Data Mesh and the Hub-Spoke: A Macro Pattern for Scaling Analytics

How can they ensure that their decision support systems are governed appropriately yet provide them the flexibility to innovate at their own pace?

The Two Concepts

The structure of a domain

A domain is defined as any logical grouping of organizational units to fulfill a functional context subjected to organizational constraints.

Nodes fulfill a specific technical capability (e.g., decision support) for a particular domain.

The governance-flexibility spectrum

The Data Mesh and the Hub-Spoke pattern strive to exist in the zone of governed-flexibility.

The Data Mesh Pattern

It is important to note that in this pattern, each domain is as independent as any other domain in the data mesh.

The Hub-Spoke Pattern

The Hybrid Pattern

Choosing the placement of domain between Data Mesh and Hub-Spoke

The degree of relative domain independence determines how one places the domain in the spectrum.
