DIGITALIS KAFKA USE CASES
FAST DATA AND ROUTING
Making system of record data available for mobile and web consumers in real-time is becoming the digital standard in banking systems, such as mobile banking and Open Banking API. Kafka is the perfect tool for routing data from systems of record to a fast, multi data centres / regions and highly available operational data store such as Cassandra with no delay. Digitalis supports enterprises in adopting Kafka to implement a fast data layer, facilitating ever increasing data demands.
SIEM AND REGULATORY COMPLIANCE
Enterprises generate an enormous volume of security logs and events every day. Kafka, ksqlDB, and Kafka Connect enable complex transformation, filtering, and routing operations to be set up quickly. A rich ecosystem of Kafka Connect plugins enable connecting multiple enterprises systems to this Kafka based SIEM solution. Digitalis experts can help enterprises implement a Kafka based SIEM solution for regulatory compliance.
Aircrafts and jet engines, vehicles, farming, smart cities, retail outlets, connected homes, logistics, utilities, factories – all generate unprecedented volumes of telemetry data that have to be captured for processing and analysis.

Digitalis helps IoT companies implement Kafka to enable real-time streaming and analytics systems.
