Data Lakehouse, Data Mesh, and Data Fabric (the alphabet soup of data architectures)

So many buzzwords of late: Data Lakehouse, Data Mesh, and Data Fabric.  What do all these terms mean and how do they compare to a data warehouse?  In this session I’ll cover all of them in detail and compare the pros and cons of each.  They all may sound great in theory, but I'll dig into the concerns you need to be aware of before taking the plunge. I’ll also include use cases so you can see what approach will work best for your big data needs.
