Real-Time IoT Data Solution with Confluent

Take full advantage of data in motion to drive real-time insights from IoT sensors, connected objects and devices to transform your operations and attain a competitive edge.

Processing IoT Data

With connected devices comes data and with data comes opportunity. Tapping into the enormous flow of IoT data can transform enterprises into digital businesses and facilitate new business models, increase efficiency and improve customer engagement. Yet, legacy data infrastructures are holding you back.

Systems are overwhelmed by dramatic increases in data volumes

The range of connected devices is broad, no one size-fits-all solution

Data streams must flow both in and out of devices

Confluent Simplifies IoT Event Streams Processing

Confluent delivers continuous, real-time data integration across all applications, systems, and IoT devices, unifying data that is normally too large or complex for traditional data integration tools.

Connect Endless Services

Ingest and consolidate streaming data and events from today’s IoT sources, including cloud or edge and extend to the future with an extensive suite of pre-built data connectors.

Handle Unlimited Streams of Data from Edge to Cloud

Easily scale to hundreds or thousands of devices to ingest, process, transform and enrich your high volume data, without any disruption or data loss.

Derive Real-Time Analytics and Insights

Process millions of events per second, transform and enrich events in real time for monitoring, alerting, improved operational efficiency and faster and more intelligent decisions.

Operate with Confidence

Achieve mission-critical reliability and easily migrate across multi-cloud environments. Ensure confidentiality, compliance and secure access. Automate deployment on any platform.

Committer-Driven Expertise

Built by the original creators of Kafka, get Gold Support from the world’s foremost Kafka experts, who work directly with Kafka committers to assist you throughout the application development lifecycle.

Production-Stage Prerequisites

Architect the platform with the foundational enterprise-level attributes needed to implement event streaming in production.

Modernize workloads incrementally over time, to reduce TCO and operational complexity

With support for traditional messaging patterns (Point-to-point and Publish/Subscribe routing semantics) in Confluent, migrate at your own pace without business disruption. Leverage a rich connector ecosystem and applications that natively have Kafka built-in. With Usage based billing, you only pay for what you use.

Use Kafka Event Streaming to Create Next-Gen IoT Applications

Autonomous and Connected Vehicles

Data generated by connected vehicles can be capitalized to deliver greater auto-safety, monitor vehicle performance and health and transform driving experiences. Capture IoT streams from cameras, radar, light detection and ranging (LIDAR) and other onboard sensors for insights into road conditions and traffic patterns to inform appropriate driving actions, prevent potential accidents and predict maintenance.
