Kafka Specialist - Freelance IT Consultant - Thomas Bonderup

The companies of the future are defined in software and data. Many companies are already building their products and services around scalable real-time event stream processing platforms like Apache Kafka and Confluent Platform. These real-time data platforms form the fundamental basis for data at large scale in many companies that use Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Internet of Things, 5G and Cloud Infrastructure in their products and services.

Companies must expand the central data infrastructure in order to be competitive in a new world of software and data.
