Analyzing Salesforce Data with Heroku, Kafka, and Connect

Analyzing Salesforce Data with Heroku, Kafka, and Connect

As data volumes get larger and analysis becomes more sophisticated, you may find yourself needing more resources than Force.com will allow. Heroku's data platform is the perfect fit for offloading the heavy lifting and integrating the results back to Salesforce. In this session, we'll use the analysis of Chatter data as an example, starting with an overview of options for moving data from Salesforce to Heroku. We'll walk through some Apex code that sends data to Heroku, and some Python code that receives the data and writes it to Heroku's Kafka service. After some data analysis to find interesting Chatter statistics, we'll write the results to Heroku Postgres, which get synced back to Salesforce by Heroku Connect. The session is meant for Salesforce developers who are curious about Heroku's powerful data platform and seamless integration with Salesforce.
