Kafka, Killer of Point-to-Point Integrations

Kafka Summit 2016 | Users Track

With 60+ products and over 24% of the US GDP flowing through it, system integration is a tough problem for Intuit. Seasonality, scale, and massive peaks in products like TurboTax, QuickBooks, and Mint.com add extra layers of difficulty when building shared data services around transaction and user graphs, clickstream processing, a/b testing, and personalization. To reduce complexity and latency, we’ve implemented Kafka as the backbone across these data services. This allows us to asynchronously trigger relevant processing, elegantly scaling up and down as needed around peaks, all without the need for point-to-point integrations.

In this talk, we share what we’ve learned about Kafka at Intuit and describe our data services architecture. We found that Kafka is invaluable in achieving a scalable, clean architecture, allowing engineering teams to focus less on integration and more on product development.
