Apache Kafka


In order to achieve the agility and speed demanded by the market, companies must be able to process data in real time, react to it, and make the data available to any number of processing systems or users.

Most organizations are faced with a flood of data coming from (new) applications, websites, the IoT and more. The ideal architecture most people imagine is a clean, optimized system. This enables companies to capitalize on all of the data. There are many different uses for this.


  • Event-driven data evaluation, e.g. for fraud detection in banking or the processing of large amounts of data for swarm intelligence. 
  • 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.
