About this talk

Many cities are investing in technologies to transform their cities into smart city environments in which data collection and analysis is utilized to manage assets and resources efficiently. Modern technology can help connect the right data, at the right time, to the right people, processes and systems. Innovations around smart cities and the Internet of Things give cities the ability to improve motor safety, unify and manage transportation systems and traffic, save energy and provide a better experience for the residents. By utilizing an event streaming platform, like Confluent, cities are able to process data in real-time from thousands of sources, such as sensors. By aggregating that data and analyzing real-time data streams, more informed decisions can be made and fine-tuned operations developed for a positive impact on everyday challenges faced by cities. Watch this webinar to learn how to: -Overcome challenges for building a smarter city -Build a real time infrastructure to correlate relevant events -Connect thousands of devices, machines, and people -Leverage open source and fully-managed solutions from the Apache Kafka ecosystem
