Christoph Spohr and his team have won the Data Mesh of the Year Award. This is intended to award their exceptional implementation of a true data mesh architecture within the Volkswagen Group. Christoph’s team built an open lakehouse architecture with Iceberg and Delta Parquet as its foundation, Enterprise Trino for query federation as well as data product creation, and attribute-based access controls for data governance. As a result, they have successfully connected different data ecosystems into a data mesh. This integration includes one petabyte of data across traditional data warehouses, S3-based storage both in the cloud and on-prem, and a cloud-based data lakehouse.
