Deliver more engaging experiences to customers
The IBM Event Streams platform can help you offer experiences that resonate with customers — in real time. Based on the open source Apache Kafka project, Event Streams can be faster and simpler to deploy. It's the ideal platform to build intelligent, responsive applications using existing data to help you become an event-driven enterprise.
Respond to events before the moment passes
React to events as they happen, then use the opportunity to interact with a potential customer.
Create responsive and personalized customer experiences
Get data to your APIs before it’s required, making your business more responsive and the end-user experiences more delightful.
Bring real-time intelligence to your applications
Bring context to machine-learning models, making real-time recommendations that continuously evolve as the situation demands.
Event input feed for data analytics
Use Event Streams to collect massive volumes of events from IoT, website tracking or back-end systems to feed into big data analytics, enabling you to spot opportunities and risks to make decisions in real time.
Create agile, cloud-native applications built around a central event bus, using event-sourced patterns or reactive frameworks. This is often a pattern used for applications that need to scale.
Bridge to cloud-native applications
Extract events from existing systems to power the next generation of responsive, cloud-native applications.
