In the past few years, Apache Kafka® has established itself as the world's most popular real-time, large-scale messaging system. It is used across a wide range of industries and government agencies by thousands of organizations such as Netflix, Cisco, PayPal, Twitter, and many others. Kafka is enabling the move to a modern and data-driven architecture.
USCIS has been the leader at the Department of Homeland Security in transforming and modernizing IT. USCIS is on the forefront of building out Agile Teams using DevOps and open source technologies. This new approach to IT Modernization has given USCIS the ability to adapt quickly to change and deliver solutions faster. Confluent supports the direction of USCIS and many other agencies to use a data-driven approach.
Join us on June 4th at 12:00 PM at the USCIS Conference Center located at 111 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, to learn how Apache Kafka® is helping the Federal Government catch up with the private sector to give citizens the same experience they are receiving in the private sector.
