Druid Summit New York City

Druid Summit - New York City

Druid Summit – New York, United States
August 4, 2022

Today, digital organizations need real-time insights delivered through internal and external applications. This requires developers like you to build apps that bring together streaming data and interactive analytics to push real-time visibility to the next level. But with 100’s of databases out there how do you know what the right architecture is?

Do you find yourself asking – how can I ingest millions of events per second? How can I analyze billions of rows interactively in seconds? How can I scale to thousands of end-users concurrently without a steep expense?

Apache Druid provides the flexibility, efficiency, and resilience needed to support your analytics applications at scale, for streaming and batch data.

Join us on July 21st for the Druid Summit – Seattle event.

During this event you will:

  • Learn what makes a modern analytics application
  • See how organizations use analytics apps to prevent loss, improve customer experience, and even drive new revenue
  • Get practical actions you can take, no matter your company size or budget
  • Hands-on experience on how to get started with Druid via our Apache Druid Basic Training Accreditation Program!
