Data Products

What are Data Products?

Data products are the result of applying the Data Mesh principle of “Data as a Product” to the way your organization is treating data. Here, product thinking is applied to data, meaning that there are producers who offer data as a product and consumers who are treated as customers.

Data products are managed by the responsible business units and are prepared and made available in high quality at a self-service marketplace for the company, where business users can use the data product for their specific use case.

The primary objective of a data product is to manage, organize and make sense of the vast amount of data that organizations collect and generate. The data users must put the insights to use that they gain from these data products, take actions and make better decisions based on these insights.


“Data as a product is about applying product thinking to how data is modeled and shared.” – Zhamak Dehghani

Benefits of Treating Data as Products

  • Break down data silos through sharing data products across teams
  • Enable the entire company to accelerate data-driven innovation
  • Get the most value out of data by making it utilizable by all
Andreas Böhm, Founder and Managing Director


“Data experts spend 80% of their time finding and organizing data and just 20% on actually analyzing data and generating real value out of it. Making data available, usable and connectable is where the value is – and we tackle that challenge through data products and Data Mesh.”
