Data is an asset that offers close to endless opportunities for innovation and improvement of operational costs, and it should come as no surprise that companies are looking to find new areas of applying this asset.

  • Why do we want data to be a primary driver in business?
  • How do we define a "data driven organization"?
  • What are the key steps required in truly becoming driven by data?

To the modern organization, data is vital and is used in most, if not all business functions which means that access to necessary information is critical in ensuring smooth operations.

In this session, our expert Lotte will share insights on how you can set up your data access structure for success.

  • The importance of access to data for flexibility
  • Ensure proper accessibility by setting up with cross-functional operations in mind
  • Utilizing newly set-up access to improve business efficiency
Data Mesh - Decentralizing the Data Architecture
Erik Herou, Lead Engineer, H&M Group

While striving towards becoming a data driven organization many companies have found limitations with their current data platform architecture that prevents them from properly creating new business applications for their data. The hyper-specialized ownership of current models hampers access to data for cross-functional teams wanting to utilize it when they look to improve business operations. Data mesh is an agile, domain-based way of setting up data architecture that allows for cross-functional access and in this session Erik Herou from H&M Group will share their implementation journey.

  • Why do we utilize a data mesh?
  • How can we benefit from it?
  • What challenges were seen during implementation?
