Logistics, shipping, and transportation require real-time information to build efficient applications and innovative business models. Data streaming enables correlated decisions, recommendations, and alerts. Kafka is everywhere across the industry. This blog post explores several real-world case studies from companies such as USPS, Swiss Post, Austrian Post, DHL, and Hermes. Use cases include cloud-native middleware modernization, track and trace, and predictive routing and ETA planning.
The public sector includes many different areas. Some groups leverage cutting-edge technology, like military leverage. Others like the public administration are years or even decades behind. This blog series explores both edges to show how data in motion powered by Apache Kafka adds value for innovative new applications and modernizing legacy IT infrastructures. This is part 2: Use cases and architectures for a Smart City.
Apache Kafka and MQTT are a perfect combination for many IoT use cases. This blog series covers the pros and cons of both technologies. Various use cases across industries, including connected vehicles, manufacturing, mobility services, and smart city are explored. The examples use different architectures, including lightweight edge scenarios, hybrid integrations, and serverless cloud solutions. This post is part four: Mobility Services and Transportation.
This blog post explores an infrastructure checklist to build an open, flexible, and scalable event streaming architecture with Apache Kafka at the edge outside data centers.
Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) enables identifying and tracking the location of assets or people in real-time. This blog post explores the use cases for RTLS, the challenges of existing implementations, and an open, scalable RTLS architecture based on Apache Kafka.
