Building Value – Understanding the TCO and ROI of Apache Kafka & Confluent

For a product or service to be cost effective, it must be considered to be good value, where the benefits are worth at least what is paid for them. But how do we measure this, to prove the case? Given that value can be intangible, it can be hard to quantify and may have little relationship to cost. Added to this, the open source nature of Apache Kafka means that many companies skip the requirement to build a business case for it, until it has become mission critical and demands financial and human resources.
