We primarily use the solution for upstreaming messages with different payload for our applications ranging from iOT, Food delivery and patient monitoring. For example for one solution we have a real-time location finding, whereby a customer for the food delivery solution wants to know, where his or her order is on a map. The delivery person's mobile phone would start publishing its location to Kafka, and then Kafka processes it, and then publishes it to subscribers, or, in this case, the customer. It allows them to see information in real-time almost instantly.

One of our clients needed to take events out of SAP to stream them through Apache Kafka while applying data enrichment before reaching the consumers.

Our primary use case is based on the writing microservices, event architecture and using Kafka as an event bus. We work on distribution - enterprise-grade - and we design, develop and deploy in a confluent environment. We are customers of Kafka and I'm the chief technology officer.

We use Apache Kafka for financial purposes. Every time one of our subscribed customers is due for an insurance payment, Apache Kafka sends an automated notification to the customer to let them know that their bill is due.

Apache Kafka is used for stream processing, metric and log aggregations, and as a message queue for connecting different microservices.

I am a solution architect and this is one of the products that I implement for my customers. Kafka works well when subscribes want to stream data for specific topics.

We primarily use the solution for big data. We often get a million messages per second, and with such a high output we use Kafka to help us handle it.

I'm a software architect. The use case will depend my customers. They usually use it for data transfer from static files to a legacy system.

Our company provides services and we use Apache Kafka as part of the solution that we provide to clients. One of the use cases is to collect all of the data from multiple endpoints and provide it to the users. Our application integrates with Kafka as a consumer using the API, and then sends information to the users who connect.

It's convenient and flexible for almost all kinds of data producers. We integrated it with Kafka Streams, which can perform some easy data processing, like summary, count, group, etc
