What is the difference between an event and an object?

  • Events append only data streams, akin to “facts” in data warehousing parlance, and objects are dimensional values that may be updated based on changes in state upstream. Each source will note if it is object-based or event-based in its documentation.

  • If you have any questions or see anywhere we can improve our documentation, please let us know or kick off a conversation in the Segment Community!
