Reverse ETL Anti Pattern vs Event Streaming with Apache Kafka
Read More

When to Use Reverse ETL and when it is an Anti-Pattern

This blog post explores why software vendors (try to) introduce new solutions for Reverse ETL, when Reverse ETL is really needed, and how it fits into the enterprise architecture. The involvement of event streaming to process data in motion is a key piece of Reverse ETL for real-time use cases.

Kappa Architecture vs Lambda Architecture for Apache Kafka Pulsar Data Lakes
Read More

Kappa Architecture is Mainstream Replacing Lambda

Real-time data beats slow data. That’s true for almost every use case. Nevertheless, enterprise architects build new infrastructures with the Lambda architecture that includes separate batch and real-time layers. This blog post explores why a single real-time pipeline, called Kappa architecture, is the better fit. Real-world examples from companies such as Disney, Shopify, and Uber explore the benefits of Kappa but also show how batch processing fits into this discussion positively without the need for Lambda.

Panel Discussion about Kafka, Edge, Networking and 5G in Oil and Gas and Mining Industry

The oil & gas and mining industries require edge computing for low latency and zero trust use cases. Most IT architectures are hybrid with big data analytics in the cloud and safety-critical data processing in disconnected and often air-gapped environments. This blog post shares a panel discussion that explores the challenges, use cases, and hardware/software/network technologies to reduce cost and innovate. A key focus is on the open-source framework Apache Kafka, the de facto standard for processing data in motion at the edge and in the cloud.
