Jay Kreps explains what Confluent has been up to lately:
What is Project Metamorphosis?
Let me try to explain. I think there are two big shifts happening in the world of data right now, and Project Metamorphosis is an attempt to bring those two things together.
The first one, and the one that Confluent is known for, is the move to event streaming.
Event streams are a real revolution in how we think about and use data, and we think they are going to be at the core of one of the most important data platforms in a modern company. Our goal at Confluent is to build the infrastructure that makes that possible and help the world take advantage of it. That’s why we exist.
But event streaming isn’t the only paradigm shift we’re in the midst of. The other change comes from the movement to the cloud.
