Event streaming platforms have emerged as a popular new trend, but what exactly is an event streaming platform? Part messaging system, part Hadoop-made-fast, part fast ETL and scalable data integration, with Apache Kafka® at the core, event streaming platforms offer an entirely new perspective on managing the flow of data. This talk will explain what an event streaming platform such as Apache Kafka is and some of the use cases and design patterns around its use—including several examples of where it is solving real business problems. New developments in this area such as KSQL will also be discussed.
