ETL can be painful with dirty data and outdated batch processes slowing you down; there has to be a better way. In this talk we’ll discuss the benefits of introducing a streaming platform to your architecture including how it can greatly simplify complexity, speed up performance, and help your team deliver the features they need with real-time data integration.
