TCS Industry Data Mesh on Microsoft Cloud
7 MINS READ
Transform your business by maximizing value from enterprise data.
Enterprises are exploring ways to better manage the enormous amounts of data they have. Traditional data management practices built around a centralized data platform are unable to meet the evolving needs of business. Often, accessibility is an issue, which means that while enterprises may have a wealth of data, they may not be able to gain the valuable insights they need to drive innovation and growth.
Treating data as a product with business functions owning their respective data products is the way forward. Such an approach can drive better governance and easy collaboration among teams. And when these data products are on cloud, it paves the way for greater collaboration among users.
Enterprises need well-cataloged data that is discoverable through self-service. They also need to streamline processes to allow better adoption and utilization of business information for faster decision making. This is where an automated, decentralized self-service platform for delivery and management of data products comes in—it will allow businesses to unlock exponential value from data.
A unified self-service platform helps data producers and consumers easily search for data products.
TCS Industry Data Mesh on Microsoft Cloud enables enterprises at varying data and analytics maturity levels to be part of a data product-centric ecosystem. It takes a hybrid approach to data mesh and data fabric utilizing Microsoft Cloud-scale analytics guidelines. Built on the TCS Machine FirstTM framework for cloud migration, and DataOps with unified data governance as the core foundation for the data mesh, the solution enables hybrid and multi-cloud journeys for enterprises.
TCS’ AI/ML and machine learning operations (MLOps) capabilities are core to the solution, driving intelligent data mesh implementations and business operations. These automation-led capabilities with quick discoverability of the right data catalog help businesses to utilize the relevant information required to build data products.
With our solution, data becomes easily discoverable for data consumers and observable for data producers while governing their own data shares. Enterprises can take faster decisions with readily available and manageable data products. Business functions and leaders can readily consume available data and share it across their functions in a governed manner.
Using this platform:
Data producers can define a data product. They can invite consumers to subscribe and access data products including Azure data shares, ML models, APIs, or PowerBI dashboards.
Data consumers can raise requests for data product creation for specific domains.
Domain data owners can approve requests for creation of data products. They can also delete unused data products during housekeeping. Data producers can focus on building the required data products with the exact business use case in mind.
Data producers and domain owners can create a data governance or product layer through the user interface with automated deployment templates.
Data producers and consumers can have P&L on their respective data portfolios, where each data product can be monetized through specific revenue models.
