Decodable Streaming with Eric Sammer

Streaming data platforms like Kafka, Pulsar, and Kinesis are now common in mainstream enterprise architectures, providing low-latency real-time messaging for analytics and applications. However, stream processing – the act of filtering, transforming, or analyzing the data inside the messages – is still an exercise left to the receiving microservice or datastore, a custom programming exercise likely repeated over and over within an application. Stream processing tools such as Apache Flink and ksqlDB have been around for half a decade, but their complexity has hindered adoption. Decodable’s mission is to radically simplify processing on the stream with a SaaS platform based on Flink, and using only SQL which frees up developers to focus on what matters most.

Eric Sammer is founder and CEO of Decodable and joins the show to discuss the potential of stream processing, its role in modern data platforms, and how it’s being used today.
