You are developing applications to make your business more responsive. The heart of your business depends on the once-and-once-only delivery of IBM MQ messages to ensure your invoicing, shipment and supply-chain applications can reliably and securely move data between systems, and keep your business running smoothly. But you need to do more.

The world is moving faster, and your customers are harder to reach, and harder to keep. You need to build applications that engage more directly with customers, providing your business with an increased level of insight into their behavior as they engage with you online.

You want to be in more control and respond to the events taking place triggered by your customers. To do this your new engaging applications need to be event driven and inform you of each action and activity as it happens. Although you know the benefits that IBM MQ provides with messaging, you want to receive a greater amount of data from these new applications as a stream of events, which is a different type of messaging to that provided by IBM MQ.

What you need is IBM Event Streams, powered by Apache Kafka. Newly announced by IBM, and becoming Generally Available on Friday September 28th, 2018, this offering will allow you to build new applications using Kafka clusters deployed on-premises or in a cloud environment. Your applications can now be built to take advantage of streaming event data offering more insight for your business. As an added benefit IBM Event Streams not only comes with IBM’s enterprise class support, but also a bridge to allow connectivity between IBM MQ and IBM Event Streams. You can then feed your applications with activity in your core business applications, as well as your new event streaming applications.

And the place to start is our webinar on October 2nd 2018. Presented by Alan Chatt, you can hear all the details you need to get started with IBM Event Streams. Register here.
