Using Amazon MSK in the Information Builders Data and Analytics Platform

AWS Kafka

Information Builders offers an adapter for Apache Kafka that provides access to and analytics against data streams / messages residing in Kafka clusters. It leverages the Kafka streaming API and can be configured with or without support for Apache Avro, which is a data serialization system. Configuring the adapter consists of specifying connection and authentication information for each of the connections you want to establish.

The Adapter for Kafka can feed the Information Builders Data and Analytics Platform and deliver streaming data for analytics, data preparation, data quality, mastering, and ETL services.
