Apache Kafka® is recognized as the world’s leading real-time, fault-tolerant, highly-scalable messaging system. It is adopted widely across thousands of companies worldwide from web giants like LinkedIn, Netflix, Uber to large enterprises like Cisco, Goldman Sachs and more. In these companies, different types of data, including customer profiles, business transactions, manufacturing performance metrics, operational transactions, security events and database updates are collected into Kafka in real-time. This architecture enables applications, data platforms and organizations to react to events in real-time. This can improve customer experience, drive revenue and reduce costs across the business.
Join us on November 6th to learn how Kafka works, investigate key architectural concepts and discuss how to build modern data applications with Kafka. You can meet and network with colleagues in the Cleveland area that are faced with similar challenges with data as you might be. We’ll also take a look at how Confluent Cloud provides a 99.95% uptime SLA allowing you to start developing in minutes on a simple, resilient, and secure cloud service.
