The Do’s & the Don’ts, the Ins & the Outs: Using Kafka for Data Streaming
If you’re interested in taking on Kafka for your use cases, Syncsort’s integration with the Kafka distributed messaging system allows users to leverage the easy-to-use graphical interface of its data integration solution, DMX-h to subscribe, transform and enrich enterprise-wide data coming from real-time Kafka queues.
DMX-h can also publish these enriched datasets to Kafka to simplify the creation of real-time analytical applications by cleansing, pre-processing and transforming data in motion.
Apache Kafka joins an already crowded Hadoop ecosystem, but enterprises are making room for it, because it is truly capable of handling data streams in real time.
In fact, for the last couple of years, Syncsort has focused on integrating DMX-h with both Apache Kafka and Apache Spark to address key customer use cases, allowing users to take advantage of two of the most powerful big data open source projects for large-scale, real-time data processing and analytics. This is part of their overall strategy for accessing and integrating data from enterprise-wide data sources, including mainframe, to support Big Data initiatives.
