About this talk

dbt has democratized the role of ‘Analytics Engineering’. It has empowered a new wave of ‘data practitioners’ across teams within the Data Mesh. The Data Mesh is an architectural paradigm that decentralizes data into product teams over a centralized data team.

Combining dbt and the data mesh creates an explosion of dbt users and with it many organizational challenges such as: How do you maintain high dbt code quality across teams? Who owns what data? If data breaks in production who is the team responsible to fix it? How do you discover data built by other teams and leverage it within your own development?
