The Medallion Architecture in Data Modeling

Nikola Ilic gets the gold:

The most common pattern for modeling the data in the lakehouse is called a medallion. I love this name – it’s really easy to remember. But, why medallion? Tag along and you’ll soon find out why.

The same as for the lakehouse concept, credits for being pioneers in the medallion approach goes to Databricks.

What I’ve found interesting is the number of people who have taken to disliking the medallion architecture terms because Databricks pushed it so hard that their clients automatically assumed “medallion = using Databricks.”
