By leveraging Confluent’s fully managed data streaming platform, iFood built streaming data pipelines, which addressed the challenge of sending and processing real-time data prior to sending it to the data lake.

Facing lots of issues with managing Kafka, iFood’s teams opted for Confluent Cloud, which provided significant ops burden reduction from its serverless offering and complete feature set, including security and Stream Governance.

Today, Confluent tracks and monitors all the phases that a piece of data goes through within iFood’s system, improving the team’s control and diagnostic capacity in relation to real-time data flows.
