Data Streaming in Real Life: Public Sector

Data streaming and event-driven architectures are the go-to architecture patterns for 2023 across all industries. Still, different industries face different challenges and follow different trends, even though there are common ones that we find horizontally. This webinar series is designed to give a deep dive into the state of data streaming in a variety of industries, with examples from all around the globe.

This webinar explores how governments and public infrastructure sectors like defense, law enforcement, healthcare, public administration or tax, just to name a few, leverage data streaming for various use cases. Join us to learn more about:

  • what trends are shaping the public sector and how countries and governments are shaping a digital-first government with data streaming, sharing data across the public and private sector
  • how data streaming provides the ability to integrate and correlate data in real time with open APIs and a reliable, scalable and flexible platform - on-premise and in the cloud
  • which enterprise architectures are we currently seeing in the public sector across the globe

Kai Waehner, Global Field CTO and William LaForest, Field CTO Public Sector from Confluent explore general trends and how data streaming architectures are used, included smart city projects, citizen services, national security to continuously modernize and innovate. The session will feature real-life use cases and data streaming customer stories from customers like UC San Diego, Deutsche Bahn, Service NSW, NASA and many more.
