As businesses strive to become more customer-centric and start building personalized, engaging experiences, they must make use of all the data and interactions with customers in a more meaningful way. There are constant streams of events in every business that go unnoticed but the information in these event streams can be of enormous value to numerous business decisions.
Apache Kafka® is the de-facto standard that enables new, real-time applications to address unique business challenges, helping them become more event-driven. IBM Event Streams is a fully supported Enterprise Grade event streaming platform based on Apache Kafka® with value-add capabilities that helps you build smart applications that can react to events as they happen.
