Since October 2022, Vanessa has been one fifth of Loveholiday’s Data Engineering function and has seen her skills and technical understanding grow rapidly in the highly agile development environment that is Loveholiday’s Platform team.

Data Mesh is not a technology or service that you can buy from a SaaS company – it’s a company-wide understanding that Data is produced a certain way, presented a certain way and maintained a certain way. You can’t scale properly if you’re not data driven and you can’t be data driven if every team is doing their own thing when it comes to data.

Over the past few years, loveholidays has been working hard to implement Data Mesh to dramatically improve company-wide data utilisation and increase trust in data. This has involved thoroughly interrogating what makes an enduringly insightful Data Product and has shined a light on what we needed to change, what we’ve done well and where we’d like to go.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • What does Data Mesh @ loveholidays looks like?
  • What hiccups have we experienced so far?
  • What’s next?

This session is for you if…you’re someone who wants to better understand how a rapidly growing company is adopting a radical data approach to make decision making faster and more accurate.
