Developed by the founders of Confluent, Kafka was initially created in 2007 while the three creators were at LinkedIn.
Today’s decision-making is different than even a few years ago. More “data” is used, and the data inputs take several forms, including humans.
A big part of today’s strategy and decision-making at enterprise-class organizations are committees, made up of a company’s subject matter experts and relevant stakeholders for a critical company initiative.
