Today's modern data architectures and the their implementations contain an Event Hub. What are the benefits of placing an Event Hub in a Modern Data (Analytics) Architecture? What exactly is an Event Hub and what capabilities should it provide? Why is Apache Kafka the most popular realization of an Event Hub?
These and many other questions will be answered in this session. The talk will start with a vendor-neutral definition of the capabilities of an Event Hub.
Then the session will highlight the different architecture styles which can be supported using an Event Hub (Kafka), such as Streaming Data Integration, Stream Analytics and Decoupled Event-Driven Applications and how can these be combined into a unified architecture, making the Event Hub the central nervous system of an enterprise architecture. We will end with an overview of the Kafka ecosystem and a placement of the various components onto the Modern Data (Analytics) Architecture.
