"Driving Data to USAF Software Factories with Mission-ready Kafka"
Confluent Platform completes the event streaming platform.
In the move towards agile DevSecOps, older waterfall development methodologies must be overhauled and improved The Air Force recognizes the advantage of being able to fail fast and rapidly iterate on new mission capabilities in order to best support the war fighter This requires near-immediate access to data services for rapid app development and the ability to stream data to apps in real-time so that users can respond as events occur Meeting this demand means having the ability to easily create, use and repackage data services across all data producers and consumers The result- ing modular approach to data improves accountability, program effectiveness, and ultimately mission success.
Confluent Platform is the mission-ready packaging of Apache Kafka, which has emerged as the open-source industry stan- dard solution to this problem Kafka is a key technology cited by the DOD DevSecOps Initiative as part of its Product Stack It is an event-driven data streaming and messaging architecture that connects sources and sinks while decoupling applications from the data sources It facilitates the asynchronous data exchange between processes, applications and servers, and can process trillions of events per day Kafka is currently used by over 100,000 organizations globally.
