Put events to work and respond in real-time

With thousands of events occurring across an organization, the amount of data being produced is also growing exponentially. Imagine if your business could tap into these ongoing streams of information, connect the dots between disparate events and detect new trends, customer issues or competitive threats as they happen.

IBM Event Automation, a fully composable solution, enables businesses to help meet and accelerate their event-driven efforts, wherever they are on their journey. The event distribution, event discovery and event processing capabilities help lay the foundation of an event-driven architecture for unlocking the value of events.

  • Business and IT teams can define business scenarios in an intuitive, easy-to-use authoring canvas in order to act in real-time.
  • IT can provide self-service access to events to facilitate sharing and reuse, while maintaining control and governance.
  • Enterprise architects can build out a complete composable enterprise-wide Kafka-based architecture.
