Dr. Alexander Borek is Head of Data Analytics at Zalando SE and a DATA festival committee member from day one. In the following video-interview, DATA festival Founder Alex Thamm had the chance to talk with Alex about the Data Mesh Concept at Zalando.
When asked what is exciting for him at the moment, Alex B. answers:
“The one thing that is really intriguing to me is the realisation of the concept of data mesh. We all know it as kind of a buzzword but Zalando is working hard on bringing it to live. It is a really powerful concept. We had data teams almost like a blocker between the people who produce and the people who consume the data. With the data mesh concept we are an enabler of dared interaction between consumers and producers. That is incredibly powerful not only as a concept but having really people and communities interact with each other. It`s a different motivation to collaborate”.
