Cloud Native Data Pipelines With Apache Kafka

As microservices, data services and serverless APIs proliferate in a cloud-native world, analysts still need to report on the business as a whole. Data engineers need to collect and standardize data in an increasingly complex and diverse system. Luckily, the problem is also the solution – the way to manage data in a cloud native environment is to build cloud native data pipelines.

In this presentation, we’ll discuss how data engineering requirements changed in a cloud-native world, and how the solutions change with them. We’ll share architectural patterns that are commonly used to build cloud native data infrastructure, and how they help you build flexible, scalable and reliable pipelines to give your business visibility on all your data.
