Overall Satisfaction with Confluent Platform

We needed a data streaming platform to support real time data ingestion to our data lake environment. This real time data supported client facing in store and digital use cases for sub second api call classification or product promotions. As well, we looked for a partner who could replace our current technology on Azure and Confluent was able to do so at a global enterprise level.
  • Streaming real time transactional data to cloud storage locations
  • Data streaming transformation reducing compute expenses on lake and warehouse environments
  • Transfer large size data segments
  • Cloud based Azure platform features for Confluent lacks behind AWS And GCP
  • Confluent replaced Microsoft Event Hubs in our environment and unblocked data platform services rollout globally.
For our use case it was very important that the technology we were working with fit into our Azure architecture, and met our data processing size requirements to stream data within certain SLAs. Confluent more than met our performance requirements and compared to the others scale options and cost to run it was more than financially viable as a platform solution to our global operations.
