Now, when those systems make changes, it creates events…and you can kind of think of these terms interchangeably,…a change or an event.…So a log is something you can think of…as a never ending stream of these changes…to a specific category or entity.…Let's take a look at a customer information example.…Now, if a customer were to create their profile…on your website, that right there is a change.…They've now created their profile…and this is an entry into your log…for all of your customer information.…
