Cutting Data Fabric and Mesh to Measure with Dr. Barry Devlin

Nov 10, 2021 · London, United Kingdom

The data warehouse is over thirty years old. The data lake just turned ten. So, is it time for something new? In fact, two new frameworks have recently emerged: data fabric and data mesh.

But what are they? Are they truly novel or simply marketing hype? Are they the same thing? How do they relate to the data warehouse, lake, hub, or even lakehouse? What are their benefits and drawbacks? Should you be planning a mesh or a fabric? If so, where would you start?


Dr. Barry Devlin is among the foremost authorities on business insight and one of the founders of data warehousing, having published the first architectural paper in 1988.

With almost 40 years of IT experience, including 20 years with IBM as a Distinguished Engineer, he is a widely respected industry analyst, consultant, speaker and author of the seminal book, “Data Warehouse—from Architecture to Implementation” and numerous White Papers. His 2013 book, “Business unIntelligence—Insight and Innovation beyond Analytics and Big Data” is available in both hardcopy and e-book formats.

As founder and principal of 9sight Consulting (, Barry provides strategic consulting and thought-leadership to buyers and vendors of BI solutions. He is continuously developing new architectural models for all aspects of decision-making and action-taking support. Now based in Cornwall, Barry’s knowledge and expertise are in demand across Europe and beyond.
