‘Domain-driven Data Architecture’-Caleb Jones, Sr. Staff Software Architect, The Walt Disney Company

In 2019, ThoughtWorks published an article titled “How to Move Beyond a Monolithic Data Lake to a Distributed Data Mesh” which brings the concepts of domain-driven architecture to the data platform landscape. This presentation will cover the concepts and theory of what a domain-driven data platform looks like. We will then illustrate how we have architected and built a domain-driven platform in the cloud at The Walt Disney Company with lessons learned. This platform allows us to scale in ways previously impossible – particularly in thorny architectural areas such as migration, reorganization, distributed teams, and as the scope, size, and complexity of the data increases.
