Strategies for faster and automated data ingestion, replication, and updating
Data streaming is revolutionizing analytics for customer engagement, operational decisions, supply chain optimization, fraud detection, and much more. In most cases, the closer organizations can get to real-time data, the more valuable the data is for gaining predictive insights, running AI/ML-driven applications, and providing situation awareness to users of dashboards and data analytics platforms. Adoption of Apache Kafka to run on cloud platforms, on premises, or a hybrid of both has proven critical to expanding the range of use cases that can benefit from real-time insights.
However, to achieve the potential of data and event streaming, organizations need to address key challenges:
- Complexity. Data teams need to reduce confusion and have better visibility so they can prepare multiple data streams for Kafka-based platforms and target analytics and data consumption.
- Efficient operations at scale: Organizations need to minimize operational complexity to ensure high performance and scalability as streaming grows throughout the organization.
- Self-service and less manual coding. Data teams can’t afford delays and errors due to heavy manual coding. Organizations need to increase automation and provide users with modern, self-service interfaces—steps that can improve productivity and reduce training pressures.
- Make it easy to build event streaming applications. Organizations need to be able to build applications that deliver fresh insights from semistructured data faster, with easier data preparation and pipeline maintenance.
- Legacy data availability. Mainframe databases and older enterprise applications can’t be left behind. Organizations need to make this data available in real-time data streams to Kafka platforms for analytics and data consumption.
- Integrate change data capture and replication. Capturing changes at data sources is an efficient, less-intrusive way of keeping target data warehouses, applications, and microservices updated. Organizations need to integrate CDC and replication with real-time data streaming.
