Kafka Connect API is a standardized and pluggable framework for handling import and export of data from Kafka with inbound and outbound connectors or integrations. The Verified Integrations Program helps ISVs build and verify connectors and integrations, to adhere to that framework. This provides customers an assurance of compatibility and functionality with Confluent Platform and Kafka.

Why Build a Connector or Integration

Apache Kafka® adoption continues to experience a meteoric growth - our 2018 survey reported that the vast majority of organizations (94%) plan to deploy new applications or systems using Kafka within the year. Why is building a connector important to your business?

  • Gain new customers - Engage with the installed base of Confluent and Kafka customers and expand your reach into new markets and use cases
  • Leverage the Confluent Ecosystem network effects - A connector offers integrations to other integrations
  • Extend the use of your product - Help existing customers access event driven applications
  • Opportunities to monetize your connector - Building a connector adds additional value to your product
