As a leading cloud communications platform provider, 8×8 enables more than a million business users to collaborate faster and work smarter. The company provides voice, video, chat, and contact center solutions on a unified global platform, complemented by real-time analytics that help enterprises delight their customers and accelerate their businesses.
As a fast growing multi-tenant SaaS Contact Center solution, 8×8 needed a way to rapidly and cost-effectively add new customers. To support this, the company decided it wanted a single event streaming platform for all of its customers – one that could scale quickly and easily as new customers joined. The platform needed to be multi-tenant, providing strict data separation – a key customer requirement – and it had to be highly resilient given its mission-critical nature. Robust security was also a must, since 8×8 handles sensitive caller information. To meet this need, 8×8 chose Apache Kafka® and Confluent Platform.
