Real-Time Data Takes Center Stage

Modern business happens in real time. Today’s competitive edge comes from getting fresh and consistent data to the right place, in the right format, at the right time to build data products faster and push use case utility and innovation to new heights. Real time data streaming unlocks the full value of all data within an organization—no matter where it resides. The value that data streaming adds to app and data product production and go-to-market velocity is undeniable.

Get Up to Speed on Data Streaming at Kafka Summit Bangalore
