So here are the summation points of this episode:

  1. Your legacy data platforms probably aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Those can have long lives but look to shut down unused capabilities
  2. Your new projects, where applicable, should be data mesh data products. But a large percent aren’t going to be that at the start. Figure out some incentives for people to push their new data products to your mesh platform early if possible
  3. You should not look to lift and shift data projects/assets/products unless it is truly easy for all users – producers and consumers – lift and shift sounds great but it doesn’t work well in all but the rarest of cases
  4. Be prepared for people to get concerned about having to migrate early – communicate strongly that you aren’t forcing migrations of existing data work
