A sister Meetup group in Chicago is holding this event. This is still a tricky time for public gatherings, but Future of Data is committed to providing great tech content & facilitating discussions in the streaming data space. Therefore, this will be an exclusively online event that will be held in the Central Daylight Time (CDT) zone. We thought this meetup might be of interest to our membership (you are welcome to sign up for it here).

This meetup is for technical and leadership audiences who want to learn how modernizing a data pipeline can transform their business.

Enterprises today deploy many types of stream processing and analysis applications to satisfy their business needs. Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is a specific kind of enterprise application maintained to assist cybersecurity teams looking through billions of events to detect and prevent fraud and cyber attacks. Behind all of these applications are data pipelines used to collect, curate, and distribute data to support analytics.

In this meetup, Gal Shpantzer, a vCISO and Data Pipeline Architect, and Laura Chu, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Cloudera DataFlow, will discuss how he employed Apache MiNiFi, NiFi, and Kafka as the basis for a new data pipeline that transformed a Fortune 500 company's analytics strategy.

At the meetup we will discuss:
- Initial data pipeline challenges at the Fortune 500 company
- Key components of the data pipeline solution: Apache MiNiFi, NiFi, and Kafka
- Business value added by using this solution for streaming data pipelines
