BMW Group and Confluent - A Fireside Chat

Today’s data is in motion. Enterprises need to see their business and their data in near real time; they need to respond in milliseconds not hours; and they need to integrate, aggregate, curate, and disseminate data within and across production environments. Join Confluent CEO Jay Kreps and Felix Böhm, Product Manager IoT Plant Solutions and Data Streaming at BMW Group, who will discuss the role that Confluent and Kafka play in optimizing the company's production and logistics strategy.
