Probably the biggest question the microservices world needs to answer today is how services fit into an increasingly fast and data-centric world. Stream processing is one answer, but how does this relate with other data technologies and what will the future really look like?

Join some of the heavyweights of the data processing field in this live, online panel or get involved by dishing out the most probing questions you can muster!
