Some examples of use of Kafka/Confluent
Retail: Every event like bought product is sent to message queue and system automatically reacts if some product is sold out or had low quantity. So it can either send alert or automatically order more.
Financial: Every event made by credit cards can be collected to Kafka. Automation can be built so that all events are analysed and if there is some anomaly alert of credit card fraud can be sent and purchase can be denied.
Air traffic: Radar systems produce air traffic data in real-time. For example all the data can’t be forwarded to services because some of the flights are not public information and has to be filtered away, With KSQL you can filter secret flights out of the stream in real-time.
