Bosch Power Tools Streams IoT Data with Confluent Cloud
The Bosch Group is a leading global IoT company and supplier of technology and services.
Bosch Power Tools, a division of The Bosch Group, is among the world’s leading providers of power tools, power tool accessories, and measuring tools. To accelerate its IoT initiatives, Bosch Power Tools relies on Confluent Cloud and Apache Kafka for asynchronous communication between applications and microservices with real-time, event-based streaming and persistent storage of events.
Bosch’s small team has already deployed several new applications based on the IoT architecture and more projects are planned or underway. By incorporating capabilities from the Confluent KSQL streaming SQL engine, Kafka Streams, and log-based Change-Data-Capture (CDC), and more, these applications will support real-time alerting and new real-time dashboards that merge and present data from manufacturing plants, dealers, tool owners, and other sources across the company. Bosch Power Tools has also built a novel software solution for lean construction site management called RefineMySite which is completely event-based and which makes use of the latest and greatest features of Confluent Cloud like Schema Registry.
