Join this private Town Hall Session to meet and speak with Jun Rao, co-founder, Confluent.
Attend to hear current updates and ask questions to Jun Rao and learn more about how and why organizations are leveraging event streaming as a foundational technology to run their business in real time.
In today's digital age, events are everywhere. Every digital action - across online purchases to ride-sharing requests to bank deposits - creates a set of events around transaction amount, transaction time, user location, account balance, and much more. Event streaming solves the fundamental business problem of re-conceptualizing data as a continually updating stream of events, not as discrete snapshots. With this new paradigm, organizations can develop a new category of event-driven applications built around real-time actions with historical context - i.e. with both eyes open and gain a universal pipeline for real-time as well as historical events.
