Forrester TEI Study: Save ~$2.58M Using Confluent Cloud vs Apache Kafka

View the Forrester Study

For over 70% of the Fortune 500, Apache Kafka® is the real-time data streaming platform of choice. But managing Kafka in-house can lead to significant operational burdens and risks that increase with scale. Your organization has more important things to focus on.

With Kafka at its core, Confluent offers a cloud-native service that sets your data in motion while removing the headaches of infrastructure management. With Confluent, you gain access to a complete set of enterprise-grade tooling with 120+ pre-built connectors, stream processing, security and data governance, global availability, and more.

We commissioned Forrester Consulting to interview four decision makers with experience using Confluent Cloud across a range of industries and use cases. The result? A detailed financial analysis and Total Economic Impact™ study that reveals the economic benefits each customer gained from using Confluent Cloud vs. self-managed Kafka.

Download the study to see how much you can save with Confluent Cloud. Highlights include:

  • Development and Operations cost savings of over $1.4M
  • Scalability and Infrastructure cost savings of over $1.1M
  • An overall 257% ROI with a payback period of less than six months
