What is Kafka and IBM Event Streams ?


New and engaging digital experiences are essential for interacting with clients. Responding to events in real time might be key to new revenue. IBM Events Streams, built on Apache Kafka, helps you create event-driven applications quickly and efficiently.

Event Streams is also able to connect natively to your MQ network, helping you unlock events from your backend systems and use them to provide context for new applications.

This session provides an overview of Kafka and introduces IBM Event Streams, including deployment, geo-replication for disaster recovery, and connectivity to IBM MQ.
