Your guide to streaming data & real-time analytics at re:Invent 2022



Mark your calendars for November 28 through December 2, 2022 to attend AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas – a learning conference hosted by AWS for the global cloud computing community.

To maximize the value of your data, you need to act upon it in real time, instead of waiting for hours, days, or week. AWS streaming data services offer unmatched, end to end capabilities to build real-time streaming data pipelines and applications to maximize the value of your data and act upon it in real time. You can leverage Kinesis Data Streams, Kinesis Video Streams and Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (MSK) to collect and store data streams at scale; Kinesis Data Firehose to load real-time streams into data lakes, warehouses, and analytics services; and Kinesis Data Analytics to analyze streaming data in real time using Apache Flink. With streaming data architectures, customers can analyze data as soon as it is produced, get timely insights and make real-time decisions to capitalize on opportunities, enhance customer experiences, prevent networking failures, or update critical business metrics in real-time, just to name a few. This post walks you through the key sessions on streaming data and analytics that you cannot miss this year at reInvent to help you plan your conference week accordingly.
