A key driver of the 3rd & 4th industrial revolutions is DATAFICATION.
- Whilst this word is yet to enter a dictionary, it can be defined as 'the transformation of events into data, or formats that can be stored digitally'.
The Event Streaming Platform is a revolution in data infrastructure and application architecture. Instead of storing static data (in a relational database, or a data lake), the streaming platform captures Events, as they happen, in real time.
Streaming Platforms have the potential to be as critical in business as the relational database.
