How to Unlock your Mainframe Data with Confluent, Attunity and Apache Kafka

Large enterprises, government agencies, and many other organisations rely on mainframe computers to deliver the core systems managing some of their most valuable and sensitive data. However, the processes and cultures around a mainframe often prevent the adoption of the agile, born-on-the web practices that have become essential to developing cutting edge internal and customer-facing applications. Mainframes also represent significant, long-term investments in terms of time, money, people and possibly even decades worth of stored data. This webinar will help you understand that you can offload and unlock your mainframe data and equip your business for the modern data-driven environment.

By attending this webinar, you will learn:

1. How to access the depth and richness of insights held in the data within your mainframe
2. How to bring real-time data from mainframes efficiently with CDC technology partners for Confluent Enterprise and Apache Kafka
3. How to reduce the costs and complexity of querying a mainframe database using the unique change data capture function
4. How to leverage Apache Kafka’s modern distributed architecture to move mainframe data in real-time
5. How Attunity Replicate software is leveraged to stream data changes to Kafka

  • How Apache Kafka® Works Recorded: Oct 28 2019 63 mins
    Michael Bingham, Technical Trainer, Confluent
    Pick up best practices for developing applications that use Apache Kafka, beginning with a high level code overview for a basic producer and consumer. From there we’ll cover strategies for building powerful stream processing applications, including high availability through replication, data retention policies, producer design and producer guarantees.

    We’ll delve into the details of delivery guarantees, including exactly-once semantics, partition strategies and consumer group rebalances. The talk will finish with a discussion of compacted topics, troubleshooting strategies and a security overview.

    This session is part 3 of 4 in our Fundamentals for Apache Kafka series.
  • Design and Implementation of Incremental Cooperative Rebalancing Recorded: Oct 24 2019 58 mins
    Speaker: Konstantine Karantasis, Software Engineer, Confluent
    Since its initial release, the Kafka group membership protocol has offered Connect, Streams and Consumer applications an ingenious and robust way to balance resources among distributed processes. The process of rebalancing, as it’s widely known, allows Kafka APIs to define an embedded protocol for load balancing within the group membership protocol itself.

    Until now, rebalancing has been working under the simple assumption that every time a new group generation is created, the members join after first releasing all of their resources, getting a whole new load assignment by the time the new group is formed. This allows Kafka APIs to provide task fault-tolerance and elasticity on top of the group membership protocol.

    However, due to its side-effects on multi-tenancy and scalability this simple approach in rebalancing, also known as stop-the-world effect, is limiting larger scale deployments. Because of stop-the-world, application tasks get interrupted only for most of them to receive the same resources after rebalancing. In this technical deep dive, we’ll discuss the proposition of Incremental Cooperative Rebalancing as a way to alleviate stop-the-world and optimize rebalancing in Kafka APIs.

    This talk will cover:
    -The internals of Incremental Cooperative Rebalancing
    -Uses cases that benefit from Incremental Cooperative Rebalancing
    -Implementation in Kafka Connect
    -Performance results in Kafka Connect clusters

  • SIEM Modernization: Build a Situationally Aware Organization with Apache Kafka® Recorded: Sep 25 2019 35 mins
    Jeffrey Needham, Confluent
    Of all security breaches, 85% are conducted with compromised credentials, often at the administration level or higher. A lot of IT groups think “security” means authentication, authorization and encryption (AAE), but these are often tick-boxes that rarely stop breaches. The internal threat surfaces of data streams or disk drives in a raidset in a data center are not the threat surface of interest.

    Cyber or Threat organizations must conduct internal investigations of IT, subcontractors and supply chains without implicating the innocent. Therefore, they are organizationally air-gapped from IT. Some surveys indicate up to 10% of IT is under investigation at any given time.

    Deploying a signal processing platform, such as Confluent Platform, allows organizations to evaluate data as soon as it becomes available enabling them to assess and mitigate risk before it arises. In Cyber or Threat Intelligence, events can be considered signals, and when analysts are hunting for threat actors, these don't appear as a single needle in a haystack, but as a series of needles. In this paradigm, streams of signals aggregate into signatures. This session shows how various sub-systems in Apache Kafka can be used to aggregate, integrate and attribute these signals into signatures of interest.

    Watch now to learn:
    -The current threat landscape
    -The difference between Security and Threat Intelligence
    -The value of Confluent Platform as an ideal complement to hardware endpoint detection systems and batch-based SIEM warehouses
  • Apache Kafka® + Machine Learning for Supply Chain Recorded: Sep 24 2019 58 mins
    Kai Waehner, Confluent + Graham Ganssle, Expero
    Automating multifaceted, complex workflows requires hybrid solutions like streaming analytics of IoT data, batch analytics like machine learning solutions, and real-time visualizations. Leaders in organizations who are responsible for global supply chain planning are responsible for working with and integrating with data from disparate sources around the world. Many of these data sources output information in real-time, which assists planners in operationalizing plans and interacting with manufacturing output. IoT sensors on manufacturing equipment and inventory control systems feed real-time processing pipelines to match actual production figures against planned schedules to calculate yield efficiency. 

    Using information from both real-time systems and batch optimization, supply chain managers are able to economize operations and automate tedious inventory and manufacturing accounting processes. Sitting on top of all these systems is a supply chain visualization tool, enabling users' visibility over the global supply chain. If you are responsible for key data integration initiatives, join for a detailed walk through of a customer's use of this system built using Confluent and Expero tools. 

    WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:
