Confluent, Inc.’s governance suite for streaming data is offered as a fully managed cloud solution.
“With the sharp rise of real-time data, the need for governance over data in motion is more critical than ever,” said Stewart Bond, Research Director, Data Integration and Data Intelligence Software, IDC. “Confluent’s Stream Governance suite allows customers to harvest intelligence about, and gain control of, data in motion, to enable a balance between innovation and trust while expanding the power of streaming data in every part of the business.”
“Data in motion is becoming the key platform for companies looking to unlock their data,” said Jay Kreps, Co-founder and CEO, Confluent. “But to truly unlock data, it isn’t enough to make it accessible. You need to also ensure it is correct, compliant, and discoverable. With Stream Governance, we make the governance of streaming data easy and integrated so customers can ensure that their data is a solid foundation for their next generation digital initiatives.”
Stream Governance makes the value of real-time data available across an organisation, with both self-service data discoverability and scalable controls for long-term data compatibility and compliance. This new suite of capabilities establishes trust in the real-time data moving throughout your business while delivering an easy, cloud-native experience that empowers teams across any organisation to quickly put these event streams to work.
“To provide homes where people feel safe and secure, we need our data in the exact same state,” said Mustapha Benosmane, Digital Product Leader, Adeo. “While Confluent ensures that our complex and ever-evolving data streams are always fit for use, keeping the technology framed and easy to use for our teams is one of our priorities. With Stream Governance, we have an additional tool to help developers in our growing engineering organisation keep improving the way we work with data in motion. They’ll have easier ways to not only find the data they need but to truly understand it and gain the confidence required to put it to use right away.”
“When responsible for the safety of our customers and their families, confidence in data is of the highest priority,” said Sean Schade, Distinguished Architect, Care.com. “With tools like Schema Registry, we have access to a trusted, scalable supply of real-time data streams across cloud environments to power the services today’s families need. And we’re excited about the launch of Confluent’s stream catalog which can allow us to develop classifications of sensitive data and an easier means of maintaining regulatory compliance.”
With billions of events streaming across a business daily, locating the data needed to build and improve applications becomes a daunting, time-consuming task. Stream catalog allows individuals across teams to collaborate within a centralized, organised library designed for sharing, finding, and understanding the high-quality data needed to drive their projects forward quickly and efficiently. This includes topics, schemas, fields in schemas, clusters, connectors, and more. It’s like a digital library for data in motion, allowing any user—experienced with streaming data or not—to put it to use right away.
