Whats the hottest new data thing in 2022 — Data Mesh or Metric Store
There is a lot of vendor washing going on
A lot of data vendors are vendor washing their technologies to pretend they enable “Data Mesh” as they are punting on Data Mesh being the new thing for 2022. I think they are missing the real hot thing for 2022, which will be the Metric Layer / Headless BI.
Waves are inevitable and endless
Data technologies go through waves, and we have seen these waves before.
We have seen a wave of databases that help store and query data warehouse data before. We have just seen that wave again, led by AWS Redshift & Microsoft PDW, then by Google BigQuery and finally Snowflake who did a great job of out marketing them all.

Compare code and data differences
One of the great things about git is it lets you see what has changed in the code.
One of things missing in git is it doesn’t let you see what is going to change in the data after you have push/pulled/PR/committed/unmergeconficted that code.
We thought both were important, so of course we added both to AgileData.

Agile is a paradigm shift
In this No Nonsense Agile Podcast, Shane and Murray chat with Erik de Bos about agile as a paradigm shift.
In this podcast they discuss:
Most organisations are slow moving bureaucracies defined by authoritarian hierarchies, rules and contracts;
Agile is a completely new way of thinking and a new vocabulary which makes new concepts and information available;
Agile is part of a broader social movement that’s about workplace democracy, experimentation, change, empowerment, decentralisation and local ownership that is changing how our society works for the better;
Its an evolution that produces organisations that are fast, flexible and lean;
And in an uncertain and rapidly changing international world nimble organizations are far more likely to survive and grow than traditional bureaucracies.
