A smart city is an urban area that uses different types of electronic Internet of Things (IoT) sensors to collect data and then use insights gained from that data to manage assets, resources, and services efficiently. This blog post explores how Apache Kafka fits into the smart city architecture and the benefits and use cases.
Event Streaming with Apache Kafka disrupts the retail industry. Walmart’s real-time inventory system and Target’s omnichannel distribution and logistics are two great examples. This blog post explores a key use case for postmodern retail companies: Real-time omnichannel retail and customer 360.
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.
Event Streaming with Apache Kafka disrupts the retail industry. This blog post explores a concrete use case as part of the overall story: A hybrid streaming architecture to build smart retail stores for autonomous or disconnected edge computing and replication to the cloud with Apache Kafka.
This blog post explores use cases, architectures, and real-world deployments of Apache Kafka in edge, hybrid, and global retail deployments at companies such as Walmart and Target.
The energy industry is changing from system-centric to smaller-scale and distributed smart grids and microgrids. These smart grids require a flexible, scalable, elastic, and reliable cloud-native infrastructure for real-time data integration and processing. This post explores use cases, architectures, and real-world deployments of event streaming with Apache Kafka in the energy industry to implement smart grids and real-time end-to-end integration.
Apache Kafka is NOT hard real-time in Industrial IoT or vehicles (such as autonomous cars) but integrates the OT/IT world for near real-time data correlation and analytics in hybrid architectures across factories at the edge, multiple clouds, and over countries.
TOP 5 Event Streaming Architectures and Use Cases for 2021: Edge deployments, hybrid and multi-cloud architectures, service mesh-based microservices, streaming machine learning, and cybersecurity.
