[Slides] (A Kafka journey and why migrate to Confluent Cloud?) (Apache Kafka® and API Management) (Evolution from EDA to Data Mesh: Data in Motion)

First Talk:
Thoughtworks Zhamak Dehghani observations on these traditional approaches’s failure modes, inspired her to develop an alternative big data management architecture that she aptly named the Data Mesh. This represents a paradigm shift that draws from modern distributed architecture and is founded on the principles of domain-driven design, self-serve platform, and product thinking with Data. In the last decade Apache Kafka has established a new category of data management infrastructure for data in motion that has been leveraged in modern distributed data architectures.

Second Talk:
Kafka and Confluent are nice, but what about the integration with public clouds like Azure. Or even better, to integrate Kafka and Confluent with a managed API management like Azure API Gateway.

In this talk we will look at how it is possible to integrate an event streaming platform like Confluent into an enterprise API Management and different other services to build up a lambda based data platform architecture.

Third Talk:
Using a success story as an example, we talk about how FRSHUB with the Apache Kafka Eco-System became an optimal business intelligence platform that interprets data from multiple sources to show real-time and predictive views of the for different business units. We talk about our IAC deployment in Azure, the API management, and why we are migrating to the Confluent Cloud.
