What can we do now relative to data mesh with what we have? People want to move, not wait for the tools to evolve. We can start to shift in anticipation of tooling getting better. It might not make things a ton better now, but when tools start to emerge, then we can jump ahead quickly. Learn from what happened in the API revolution and don't compromise on interoperability - that will just lead to high quality data silos, which is not a great outcome. And we need to get to a place with data where consumers have a delightful experience going from discover to learn to trust to use with little friction.
