Kostas Tzoumas resolved FLINK-1089.
    Resolution: Fixed

> The Flink website main page is uninformative.
> ---------------------------------------------
>                 Key: FLINK-1089
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-1089
>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Project Website
>            Reporter: Sergey Dudoladov
>            Assignee: Ufuk Celebi
>            Priority: Trivial
>              Labels: documentaion, site
> The webpage at http://flink.incubator.apache.org/ provides no  information on why Flink
is useful.
> The problem is that after skimming the main page people cannot figure out why they should
try Flink.  I gave the link above to my friend from industry, and in 5 minutes he asked me
if Flink was an enterprise Java framework.
> I suggest adding 2-3 paragraphs under the "Project Overview" heading. They should explain
in plain English what dataflow systems are, which tasks they solve and what differentiates
Flink from its competitors.
> A link to the recent VLDB paper might help as well. 
> PS I would like to emphasize the word "plain" in the previous paragraph.
