How do I get nominated and nominate other companies?

The questions are designed to gather both technical and non-technical details of the project or team being nominated.Ā 

What are the judges looking for? Theyā€™re looking for nominations that showcase data streaming projects that are:

Itā€™s a platform to showcase how data streaming has changed your business to deliver more value to customers, and get a view into what other top data streamers are doing in their organizations.ā€--Adam Bellemare, Staff Technologist at Confluentā€™s Technology Strategy Group and a Data Streaming Awards 2023 judge

Building a trusted Data Streaming Awards program

Ensuring a fair, transparent, and independent Data Streaming Awards has been top of mind for us since its inception.

And it will be no different this year. Hereā€™s how we are building transparency and trust:Ā 

  • A diverse panel of judges:

    • Our judging panel is made up of a diverse set of data streaming industry experts, including those from other data streaming vendors.

    • We will ensure that the number of Confluent-employed judges doesnā€™t exceed the number of judges from other companies on the panel.

  • Open nominations:

    • Nominations can be submitted by anyone and everyone!

    • Companies will have the opportunity to promote nominations to their employees and communities to ensure a wide variety of entrants.

  • Selecting winners:

    • Only the judges will be involved in choosing the winners.

    • Each judgeā€™s vote remains confidential until winners are confirmed.

A look back: Our inaugural Data Streaming Awards 2022

We had an amazing time last year at Current 2022 celebrating the winners of our first-ever Data Streaming Awards.

The data streaming community came together to recognize winners like NASA+JPL, Walmart, LinkedIn, and more, for revolutionizing the industry by implementing innovative use cases they are powering through data streaming technologies.

An equally fun experience awaits you this year. So, why wait? Start nominating today!

Note: If you have any questions about the process, please reach out to hello@datastreamingawards.io.

Nominate your team, your company, or a team from another company before July 17, 2023!
