Course Description

In this course, you will look into the data mesh architecture and the process of selecting data platforms which best fulfill the needs of a large, data-driven organization.

Begin by delving into two approaches to managing the data in an organization: a centralized data team and a data mesh architecture, which is a more federated approach. Explore how a data mesh allows individual domain teams in an organization to manage their own data as long as it is made available to other teams and adheres to certain standards. Next, discover the various considerations for selecting data-related tools in an organization. You will get a glimpse into Apache Kafka and RabbitMQ, two widely used messaging tools, and will see use cases where each of them excel.

Finally, you will look into two use cases for data stores: one for a web or mobile app and another for a team performing data analysis. Here, you will look into the use of Apache Cassandra and the Snowflake platform.
