    The product was very user friendly and extremely easy to get started with. The documentation is excellent and the free tier makes it very easy to get started with without having to make deep or long term financial commitments.

    I met with the support team and they have deep technical and development understanding of the needs and the problems which IBM Event Streams addresses. If you are looking for a product backed by a highly technical support team then IBM Event Streams is probably the best choice. I was specifically impressed by the level of technical understanding my support team demonstrated.

    We've evaluated Confluent Kafka and the price point of Message Hub is excellent. The support has been great. Message Hub provides the same number of features that Apache Kafka provides which has been tremendous.

    Return on Investment

    IBM Event Streams

    • It is in [the] early stages at our company - still a proof of concept - so the business implications haven't taken effect yet.
