Award-winning user experience

Event Streams user interface

Award-winning user experience

IBM® Event Streams has a simple yet powerful UI that puts you in control of your Kafka infrastructure.

The award-winning UI contains a message browser, a key metrics dashboard and powerful utilities to help manage your Kafka deployments.

Schema registry

Schema registry

Event Streams supports Apache Avro schemas, so Kafka applications can use schemas to validate data structures and to encode and decode data.
