  • The business benefits of migrating your data streaming use cases to the cloud
  • The challenges facing organizations who chose to self-manage vs. choosing a cloud-native Kafka service
  • Why infinite scale, elasticity, multi-tenancy, and global replication are essential features for a cloud-native data streaming platform
  • How the capabilities of open-source Kafka and Confluent Cloud differ
