Q&A with Citigroup | Kafka Summit 2020 Keynote

Join Confluent co-founder Jun Rao as he talks with Leon Stiehl of Citi about why and how Kafka is at the epicenter of seismic change in the way big banks and financial institutions think about data. Gone are the days of end-of-day batch processes and static data locked in disparate silos. Today’s data is in motion, and Citi is moving with it. Enterprises need to see their business in near real time; they need to respond in milliseconds not hours; and they need to integrate, aggregate, curate, and disseminate data and events within and across production environments. Learn how Citi is tackling these challenges, using event streaming to drive efficiencies and improve customer experiences.
