Q&A with Lowe's | Kafka Summit 2020 Keynote

In this Q&A keynote, Confluent co-founder Jun Rao and Lowe’s Domain Architect Bhanu Solleti will discuss the central role that Kafka and real-time event streaming play at one of the world’s largest home improvement retailers. At Lowe’s, Kafka and Confluent Platform form the core of an event-driven architecture that connects systems across cloud platforms, data centers, and brick-and-mortar stores. This architecture, along with enterprise-ready solutions like replicators and connectors, are helping Lowe’s improve time-to-market and respond quickly to shifting store hours, increased curbside pickup, and a range of other new business imperatives that have emerged during the pandemic.
