- Talk(s): Practical IoT with Kafka
The Internet of Things (IoT) has arrived, transforming everything from our retail experiences to the household electronics that amaze us, to the complex manufacturing processes requiring automation and real-time monitoring at every step. Real-time event-driven systems are critical in IoT – stale inventory numbers yield unhappy shoppers, batch-driven QA processes waste valuable time on the manufacturing floor, and late-arriving vehicle locations introduce guesswork into fleet management and routing decisions. In this session, we build a practical IoT solution for fleet management and outline a reference architecture positioning Kafka as the event and streaming processing backbone of an end-to-end IoT monitoring and analytics solution.
