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 Swiss Post, Austrian Post, DHL, and Hermes. Use cases include cloud-native middleware modernization, track and trace, and predictive routing and ETA planning.
Not all workloads should go to the cloud! Low latency, cybersecurity, and cost-efficiency require a suitable combination of edge computing and cloud integration. This blog post explores hybrid data streaming with Apache Kafka anywhere. A live demo shows data synchronization from the edge to the public cloud across continents with Kafka on Hivecell edge hardware and serverless Confluent Cloud.
Apache Kafka is the central nervous system of many applications in various areas related to the automotive and manufacturing industry for processing analytical and transactional data in motion across edge, hybrid, and multi-cloud deployments. This article explores the event streaming landscape for automotive including connected vehicles, smart manufacturing, supply chain optimization, aftersales, mobility services, and innovative new business models.
Apache Kafka and Event Streaming are two of the most relevant buzzwords in tech these days. Ever wonder what my predicted TOP 5 Event Streaming Architectures and Use Cases for 2022 are to set data in motion? Check out the following presentation. Learn about the Kappa architecture, hyper-personalized omnichannel, multi-cloud deployments, edge analytics, and real-time cybersecurity.
Data Mesh is a new architecture paradigm that gets a lot of buzzes these days. This blog post looks into this principle deeper to explore why no single technology is the perfect fit to build a Data Mesh. Examples show why an open and scalable decentralized real-time platform like Apache Kafka is often the heart of the Data Mesh infrastructure, complemented by many other data platforms to solve business problems.
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.
The manufacturing industry is moving away from just selling machinery, devices, and other hardware. Software and services increase revenue and margins. Equipment-as-a-Service (EaaS) even outsources the maintenance to the vendor. This paradigm shift is only possible with reliable and scalable real-time data processing leveraging an event streaming platform such as Apache Kafka. This post explores how Kafka-native Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance help with this innovation.
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 5: Use cases and architectures for national security, cybersecurity, defense, and military.
