To achieve the agility and speed required by the market, organizations need to be able to process data in real time, respond to it, and deliver the data to any number of processing systems or users. Most organizations face a flood of data coming from (new) applications, websites, the IoT, and more. The ideal architecture most imagine is a clean, optimized system. This allows companies to capitalize on all this data. There are a wide variety of use cases for this purpose.
Event-driven data analysis, e.g. for carrying out fraud detection in banking, processing the largest amount of data for black intelligence applications or autonomous driving.
Loose coupling or decoupling of legacy applications and modern applications with Kafka as a common event streaming platform.
Creation or expansion of micro services architecture.
Realization of dynamic analytics applications, e.g. for machine learning.
Migration or merging old applications, e.g. in M & A scenarios: By storing the data from the old application in Kafka, the target applications can access them at any time and permanently.
