An online marketplace for a range of care services including childcare, senior care, tutoring, pet care, and housekeeping with millions of members across 20 countries, Care.com was in need of a much simpler, unified IT architecture to be able to streamline go-to-market initiatives and pivot quickly and effectively with the ever-changing needs of its customers and the marketplace in general.
To accomplish this architectural transformation, the company began building a new platform—the Bravo Platform—that could seamlessly scale with its changing data needs while taking a more agile, granular, and nuanced approach to data security. The company was already using Confluent Platform but chose to transition to Confluent Cloud to power the Bravo Platform and achieve its goal of unifying a series of monolithic architectures into a single, agile platform that could accelerate Care.com on its stated mission of being a one-stop shop for families of all types to meet all of their care needs.
Integrate a collection of large, monolithic systems into a single platform that accelerates time to market and improves the overall customer experience.
Leverage the scalability and reliability of Confluent Cloud to reduce the operational burden of managing the core infrastructure.
One of the main benefits Confluent Cloud has provided is being able to make the changes we want to make quickly and easily by creating a more seamless backend experience.
