Standing at an inflection point is a magical experience. It’s where we look at what has come before, learn from it, and choose a new path. Data Mesh has motivated many organizations to stand at an inflection point. It has surfaced the underlying conditions for slow and costly attempts in getting value from data, and it has set the eyes on a new destination. But the motivation alone is not enough.

In this talk, Zhamak tells a short story of why we are here and what has happened before the inflection point of Data Mesh. What does the destination of an organization toward Data Mesh look like, after the inflection point? What is anchoring organizations to move forward and move fast?

She leaves the audience with some practical steps to rewire an organizational brain—behavior and technology—to make atomic changes toward Data Mesh and move to new heights.

Duation: 60 minutes (including audience Q&A)
