Modern businesses have data at their core, and this data is changing continuously. How can we harness this torrent of continuously changing data in real time? The answer is stream processing, and the open source system that has become the most popular hub for streaming data is Apache Kafka®.
Confluent and KPI Partners give a brief introduction to Apache Kafka and describe its usage as a platform for streaming data. We'll explore how Kafka serves as a foundation for both streaming data pipelines and applications that consume and process real-time data streams and introduce some of the newer components of Kafka that help make this possible, including Kafka's Connect API, a framework for capturing continuous data streams, and Kafka's Streams API, a lightweight stream processing library.
