Over 100,000 organizations use Apache Kafka for data streaming. However, there is a problem: The broad ecosystem lacks a mature client framework and managed cloud service for Python data engineers. Quix Streams is a new technology on the market trying to close this gap. This blog post discusses this Python library, its place in the Kafka ecosystem, and when to use it instead of Apache Flink or other Python- or SQL-based substitutes.
Data Streaming is not a race, it is a journey! Event-driven architectures and technologies like Apache Kafka or Apache Flink require a mind shift in architecting, developing, deploying, and monitoring applications. This blog post explores success stories from data streaming journeys across industries, including banking, retail, insurance, manufacturing, healthcare, energy & utilities, and software companies.
Apache Kafka and Apache Flink are increasingly joining forces to build innovative real-time stream processing applications. This blog post explores the benefits of combining both open-source frameworks, shows unique differentiators of Flink versus Kafka, and discusses when to use a Kafka-native streaming engine like Kafka Streams instead of Flink.
Data streaming is a new software category to process data in motion. Apache Kafka is the de facto standard used by over 100,000 organizations. Plenty of vendors offer Kafka platforms and cloud services. Many complementary stream processing engines like Apache Flink and SaaS offerings have emerged. And competitive technologies like Pulsar and Redpanda try to get market share. This blog post explores the data streaming landscape of 2023 to summarize existing solutions and market trends.
Fraud detection becomes increasingly challenging in a digital world across all industries. Real-time data processing with Apache Kafka became the de facto standard to correlate and prevent fraud continuously before it happens. This blog post explores case studies for fraud prevention from companies such as Paypal, Capital One, ING Bank, Grab, and Kakao Games that leverage stream processing technologies like Kafka Streams, KSQL, and Apache Flink.
IT modernization and innovative new technologies change the healthcare industry significantly. This blog series explores how data streaming with Apache Kafka enables real-time data processing and business process automation. This is part four: Real-Time Analytics. Examples include Cerner, Celmatix, CDC/Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
This post explores why Apache Kafka is the new black for integration projects, how Kafka fits into the discussion around cloud-native iPaaS solutions, and why event streaming is a new software category. A concrete real-world example shows the difference between event streaming and traditional integration platforms respectively iPaaS.
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.
This blog series explores use cases and architectures for Apache Kafka in the cybersecurity space, including situational awareness, threat intelligence, forensics, air-gapped and zero trust environments, and SIEM / SOAR modernization. This post is part three: Cyber Threat Intelligence.
