Geopolitical challenges put pressure on companies, so it’s more important than ever to use data comprehensively: This generates new value and boosts productivity.

However, it’s essential to integrate information from specialist business domains and process them via the concept of a decentralized data mesh. One Data Cartography provides the technological foundation for this: First, it creates a data map of all relevant data records from all business domains—so these can be efficiently managed, quality assured, and provisioned as data products for individual business domains. This boosts productivity, sustainability, and transparency.

The data mesh concept at a glance

One Data Cartography is the technical foundation you need to put the principles of the data mesh concept into practice. Data is managed by the company’s business domains in a decentralized way. Within the framework of the data mesh, data is transformed into quality-assured data products that make data searchable, instantly understandable, and secure while ensuring its interoperability. Simultaneously, the appropriate enabling technology helps avoid data silos through a comprehensive, replication-free connection to source data. Teams are connected and networked across domain boundaries to reduce the effort of IT teams. And finally, a federal responsibility structure ensures the autonomy and agility of the various business domains. The four pillars of data mesh are as follows:

The Four Principles of a Data Collaboration Platform

Data Mesh
  1. Principle of Domain Ownership

  2. Principle of Data as a Product

  3. Principle of the Self-Serve Data Platform

  4. Principle of Federated Computational Governance

How to Use One Data Cartography to Build the Foundation for Data Mesh

1. Data landscape transparency for all business domains

Data in companies often comes from non-transparent sources and contains incorrect or incomplete links. One Data Cartography creates a replication-free “data map” across all connected source systems and business domains. As a result, the data owners—usually the contributing business domains—and specific data users can check, manage, and locate all their data—regardless of the volume and complexity of the data.

2. Make data products usable via a Data Collaboration Platform

The success of applications depends largely on the quality of the data. For this reason, each business domain can first cleanse and process its data products as per the defined quality criteria supported by One Data Cartography and corresponding rights management. In addition, One Data Cartography enables AI-based anomaly detection, automated quality checks, and enrichment with metadata. Subsequently, the data products can be published in a comprehensive data inventory—a type of “marketplace”. Developing applications for business cases can begin at any time and the process will run smoothly.

3. Efficient self-service processes

At One Data Cartography, data owners, data users, and developers work hand in hand with the same technology—without having to approach data owners or even the IT department directly. Via the self-service portal in One Data Cartography, teams can make requests, gain access approval, and search for data products. The data map also enables data to be handled intuitively. And thanks to simplified access, centralized data teams are no longer a bottleneck. This always ensures that data flows freely throughout the organization, generating real value.

4. Technical data governance with data mesh

One Data Cartography supports the implementation of the data mesh concept by enabling decentralized technical data governance, giving all business domains the autonomy they need. Within the framework of a central operating model, a central team controls only the corresponding access and administration rights. This results in a more flexible, more secure data landscape.

Core functions at a Glance

Manage complexity and search for (meta)data

Hierarchical zoom levels and visual levels group datasets according to their properties and allow you to easily navigate through the data landscape. Use the metadata-based search to find specific data and its connections.

Data mesh enables: Searchable, accessible, connected data as data products.

Manage quality in real time

Use automatic checks for quality anomalies—continuously and in real time. Notifications allow data owners to respond immediately and troubleshoot any detected issues. Help your teams accelerate projects by up to 70% and stay up to date with the data they collect.

Data mesh enables: Valuable, linked data products for self service.

Automatically inventorize and classify

Objective and unbiased decision-making requires complete data. Connectors let you access your data sources. Use advanced algorithms and automated pipelines to generate a complete fingerprint of the corporate data landscape, including classification and the identification of personal data as examples.

Data mesh enables: Interdisciplinary access to complete and interoperable data products.

Track and link data across systems

One Data Cartography enables holistic and seamless data tracking across system boundaries using record linkage, to automatically connect data silos and similar column names in separate data sets are identified and linked together by algorithms based on metadata. For example, related information—such as the price of a product and the quantity sold—can be assigned to the object. The new link is also permanently available to other users and business domains as enriched information. This creates maximum data transparency for the entire company.

Data mesh enables: Data freed from silos and linked interoperable data products.
