Kafka: Giving You Immediate Access to Data


Pooja Rallabhandi, software developer at Ticketmaster, contemplates why API’s are not allowing data to be available in real-time, without getting into the issues of network latency. The solution is Kafka, which allows any kind of data streaming – transactional and reporting – making it available to UI, clients, or even fraud detection.

Every time a system doesn’t perform well, it’s because of a reliance on someone else. Data streams flowing through the system gives automatic notifications with less downtime. Kafka ensures that messages which flow, come in the same order in which it was released in the system.
