Apache Kafka

Apache Kafka is extremely well suited in near real-time scenarios, high volume or multi-location projects. It can solve escalation problems for a fraction of the cost other solutions do and it has the flexibility of open source scenarios.

Standard dashboard for basic statistics. GREATAdvanced multivariate modeling needs to be coded in R for example, LESS GREAT. You would get a million users for off-the-shelf multivariate modeling like SIMCA.The integration with Statistica is a great idea but much of its success will depend on the speed and the ergonomics by which you integrate the development workflow for multivariate models PLS/PLS-DA/ PCA etc.You should implement some of the features offered by SIMCA (Sartorius Stedim) and expand the multivariate analysis offering and more advanced tools (from Random Forest to T-SNE and machine learning / AI). You will get lots of 'love' from pharmaceutical engineers. :)

Pros

  • High volume/performance throughput environments
  • Low latency projects
  • Multiple consumers for the same data, reprocessing, long-lasting information

  • Works well as a rules engine with process orchestration capability.
  • Maintains the state as the process goes through various stages.
  • Well defined state diagram that specifies what process or rules to apply and behavior is specified as declarative rules.

Kafka is quickly becoming core product of the organization, indeed it is replacing older messaging systems. No better alternatives found yet

Alternatives Considered

Kafka is faster and more scalable, also "free" as opensource (albeit we deploy using a commercial distribution). Infrastructure tends to be cheaper. On the other hand, projects must adapt to Kafka APIs that sometimes change and BAU increases until a major 1.x version comes out and adds stability to the product.

You need a full orchestration suite to perform pre-enrollment checks before storing [them] into the system of records. TIBCO BusinessEvents was bought along with TIBCO BusinessWorks (BW) to design the end to end flow for member contract processing. We were able to get down the processing time to 12 seconds and were also able to increase the first pass rate.

Return on Investment

  • Easier deployment and horizontal scalability
  • Messaging cost reduction
  • Developments require adaptation and some paradigm shift to interoperate with Kafka

  • We are able to stay on top of major threats to our claims process
  • We have been able to at least help the business understand what an adaptive business process can do for them
