Today’s industry leaders understand that their business is a series of events: every digital interaction creates a set of events and you need to be able to react to these in a timely fashion. Event streaming maps to this, by allowing enterprises to see their data as a continually updating stream of events.

Join our first Z'Nüni for Architects in Zurich on September 18 and learn more about Apache Kafka, the distributed event streaming platform capable of handling trillions of events a day and Confluent Platform, which completes Kafka for full enterprise use.

With hands-on examples from mimacom we will discuss how grown, complex enterprise architectures can be transformed into flexible, agile and modern platforms that turn data into knowledge, intelligence and business value.

The Rise of Event Streaming – Why Apache Kafka is Changing Everything

Today, Apache Kafka is being used by tens of thousands of companies including over 60% of the Fortune 100 to power and innovate their businesses. We will discuss the market and technology changes that have given rise to Kafka and to Event Streaming, and we will introduce the audience to the key aspects of building an Event Event streaming platform with Kafka.

He is the former product manager for Kafka’s Streams API and KSQL and one of the first employees of Confluent. Previously Michael led the big data platform of .COM/.NET DNS operator Verisign, where he grew the Hadoop, Kafka, and Storm based infrastructure from zero to petabyte-sized production clusters spanning multiple data centers—one of the largest big data infrastructures operated from Europe at the time. He is a known tech blogger (www.michael-noll.com) and a committer/contributor to Apache projects such as Storm and Kafka. Michael holds a PhD in computer science and is a frequent speaker at international conferences including Kafka Summit, Strata, and ApacheCon.
