It is really funny (but not surprising) how much these Gartner predictions overlap and complement the five use cases I focus on for Event Streaming and Apache Kafka. The tech industry’s key trends are all about data correlation, real-time processing, analytics, and integration between various systems and technologies—all of that globally and securely. Hence, here you go with the top 5 trends around Apache Kafka for 2021…

Top 5 Apache Kafka Use Cases for 2021

Here are the five use cases I see coming up more and more in conversations with customers across the globe:
  • Edge deployments outside the data center: It’s time to challenge the normality of limited hardware and disconnected infrastructure.
  • Hybrid and multi-cloud architectures: Discover how these span multiple sites across regions, continents, data centers, and clouds with real-time information at scale to connect legacy and modern infrastructures.
  • Service mesh-based microservices architectures: Learn what becomes possible when organizations can provide a cloud-native event-based infrastructure.
  • Streaming machine learning: In 2021, many companies will move to streaming machine learning in production without the need for a data lake that enables scalable real-time analytics.
  • Cybersecurity: While security never goes out of style, in 2021, we will see cybersecurity in real-time at scale with openness and flexibility at its core.
