Current '23 Keynote: Streaming into the Future - The Evolution & Impact of Data Streaming Platforms

Sep 27, 2023

Jay Kreps (Confluent Co-Founder and CEO), Shaun Clowes (Confluent CPO), and data streaming leaders from organizations like NASA, Warner Brothers, and Notion explore the past, present, and future of data streaming. They will address two key questions: how can organizations integrate data across their applications to deliver better experiences, and how can they embed data and analytics into every part of the business to drive better decision-making? The Keynote will present how a Data Streaming Platform built on Kafka can enable organizations to stitch together data from across the organization to produce high-value data assets that can be shared and used to support operational applications and data analytics, including exciting new use cases such as Generative AI.
