An executive asked you for a real-time dashboard for your company metrics? Be careful, it may be a trap. The real value of real-time data lies outside the C-suite, in the hands of users who need real-time data for real-time decisions and action.
This is nowhere more apparent than in the evolving architectures of leading SaaS applications such as Notion, GitHub or LinkedIn. They provide a data-rich user experience that users have learned to expect.
Gwen is the co-founder of Nile, where she and her team are trying to make it easier to build world-class SaaS. In her keynote, she’ll take a tour of how the SaaS landscape evolved and show examples of products that put real-time data front-and-center. She’ll share some of the architectures she’s seen teams develop to deliver these insights, and point out the architectures that break in painful ways vs the ones that are actually proving themselves in this next generation of applications already being built.
