Data streaming is an infrastructure revolution that is fundamentally changing how Departments and Agencies think about data and build applications.

With data volume growing at breakneck speed, the ability to harness its power in real time is the key to driving improved service delivery, accelerating innovation, and reducing risks—ultimately creating a more responsive government.

As a result, more businesses are tapping into data streaming platforms to process continuous streams of data as soon as they are generated. It is now the backbone of many business-critical systems—from customer experiences to automated operations.

Hear how Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads leverages event streaming within the Digital Drivers Licence program, hear the current state of real-time data streaming in Australia, and learn what use cases can be leveraged for your business needs.
