Industry Briefing: Real-time Streaming for Government and the Public Sector

Wednesday, 15 May
13:00-18:00

Part of our mission at Confluent is to build communities of like like-minded individuals who can share experiences and learn from each other.  As a result, we’re launching the first Confluent event specifically for the UK government. Confluent is the commercial organisation founded by the original authors of Apache Kafka® . Consequently, Confluent Platform is the most widely adopted enterprise distribution of Apache Kafka® .

Event streaming is an infrastructure revolution that is fundamentally changing how public sector organisations think about data and build applications. Rather than viewing data as stored records or transient messages, data could be considered to be a continually updating stream of events. Event-driven architecture is the future of data infrastructure, this event is designed to educate and inform those who are interesting in driving this change.

Whether you are an Apache Kafka® expert, recent convert or technically curious, this event is for you.
