Flink Forward Global 2021 is a 2-day virtual conference for the Apache Flink and stream processing communities. Apache Flink is an open-source distributed engine for processing data streams that can support both streaming and batch workloads. Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics is a fully managed service for Apache Flink on AWS that reduces the complexity of building, managing, and integrating Apache Flink applications with other AWS services. You can use Kinesis Data Analytics for Apache Flink to process data from Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK), Amazon Kinesis Data Streams, and a variety of data sources for use cases such as streaming ETL (extract, transform, and load), log analysis, event-driven applications, and anomaly and fraud detection in real time.

Flink Forward has keynote presentations and talks on production Flink use cases, technical deep dive sessions, and the growth of the Flink ecosystem. You can meet core Flink committers, new and experienced users, and thought leaders who share experiences and best practices in stream processing, real-time analytics, and the management of mission-critical Flink deployments in production.

AWS is a Platinum sponsor for Flink Forward. If you’re interested in learning about real-time data processing at scale, register now to attend.
