Unbiased Data Insights
While many industry analyst firms generate a significant portion of their revenue from vendors, our goal at Data Mesh Understanding is to generate most of our revenue from implementers. That means that people have to be willing to pay for access to information that is not funneled through vendors but we believe that this is the best way to find scalable and sustainable practices that are not tied to tools instead of ways of working.
Balancing Vendor Collaboration
Vendors are CRUCIAL to doing data mesh right. If you had to build everything yourself, that would be far too big a task for even the largest organizations. But we want to be able to look at vendors and their offerings for what they can do to help us address challenges. So we need to keep them in a place and a framing that is healthy for the overall community and our understanding of how to do data mesh right.
