Apache Kafka

Build streaming data pipelines and apps with enterprise-class support for Apache Kafka

As organizations shift to a digital business model, they will have massive amounts of streaming data that present the opportunity to leverage it in context-rich manners to drive business outcomes. Efficient data distribution and stream processing is what Apache Kafka® was designed to do. TIBCO® Messaging draws on more than 25 years of industry-leading experience in high-performance messaging technology to offer enterprise-class, 24x7, “follow-the-sun” support for Apache Kafka.


Turn events into action with continuous streaming

When looking to handle large data feeds, the publish/subscribe and streaming functions of Apache Kafka provide secure, reliable message delivery. From those data streams, you can glean insights that can be turned into purposeful actions. With complex functions such as aggregations, joins, and filters, you’re able to perform stateful computations to identify and react to events as they occur in real time to sustain a competitive advantage.

Complement your open source messaging implementations

Add web, mobile, and IoT messaging, world-class integration, streaming analytics, and other enterprise platform capabilities to Apache Kafka, allowing architects and developers to provide a broader messaging solution that includes expanded capabilities and first-class global support.
