Legacy middleware systems such as messaging queues(MQs), enterprise service buses(ESB), publish subscribe, and ETL tools have served as a data integration backbone for years. As organizations move to digitize their businesses with distributed, real-time data, legacy messaging systems fall short due to limited scalability, availability,expensive proprietary technology and a lack of data persistence.
Learn how Confluent is setting data in motion across every industry with real-time data streaming to deliver multi-cloud data pipelines for analytics, AI and IoT at scale while cutting costs from your messaging infrastructure and eliminating technical debt.
Traditional messaging systems like MQs, ESBs, and ETL tools have been used for decades as a central hub between databases, data warehouses, applications or storage systems. However, today’s production enterprise architectures have grown increasingly complex, and when you couple Messaging systems with modern, agile deployment and development, these systems start to fail. Moreover, legacy messaging cannot scale, persist data or are batch driven processes using proprietary technologies which cannot keep pace with your evolving business needs.
Combine legacy systems with Confluent for new data streaming use-cases as a first step to gradually migrate workloads from your traditional MQs, ESBs or ETL tooling, over time
