“Potential buyers know they can trust these insights when researching and selecting software because they’re rooted in vetted, verified, and authentic reviews.”
— Sara Rossio, Chief Product Officer, G2




Confluent recently became the best stream processing platform on G2, being named the event stream processing industry leader by G2, the world’s largest and most trusted software marketplace. This recognition is based on the responses of real users for each of the event streaming-related questions featured in the G2 review form. Users noted Confluent’s strengths in performance and reliability, ease of use and setup, integration APIs, data modeling features, and more.

G2 defines the event streaming category as allowing for the processing of data on the fly so that organizations can properly store, manage, and analyze their streaming data. “Data streaming” and “event streaming” are often used synonymously—an “event” is any change in data, so an event-driven architecture uses those events to continually stream in the latest information.

Stream processing (also known as event streaming or complex event processing) has numerous use cases, and is often the back-end process for billing, fulfillment or fraud detection. In contrast with batch processing, which focuses only on historical data, stream processing enables processing in real time and gives users the ability to examine how data has changed over time.
