Real-Time Data for Financial Services

At present, VOLUME dominates the big data conversation; the higher the volume of data, the higher the value. The team at Confluent want to shatter this myth and elevate another principle – TIME.

Data events delivered and interacted with in real time have value. The faster you can receive and respond to a piece of data, the more benefit it can provide to your business.

This event is designed to challenge and change existing mindsets. By attending, you will explore examples of real-time data from a variety of businesses and understand the value that an agile, event streaming platform can deliver.
