Axual joins the Confluent Partner Program

Axual, provider of real-time data solutions in The Netherlands, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a partnership with U.S.-based Confluent, provider of the leading streaming platform based on Apache KafkaTM. Confluent designed its partner program to enable a rapidly growing ecosystem around Apache Kafka and Confluent Platform. It is the largest ecosystem of technology vendors, consulting and system integrators and authorized training partners offering Kafka-based solutions and services.

Jeroen van Disseldorp, Axual CEO: “We use Apache Kafka and Confluent Platform to convert our clients’ business processes into real-time processes. Joining the partner program is a logical and yet exciting step. The close cooperation with Confluent enables us to provide our clients the latest in secure streaming technology, necessary to make the transition into a real-time business. There is mutual benefit in the partnership. Confluent dedicates its knowledge and expertise to assist our experts wherever necessary. In turn we contribute our real-life experiences back to the community, making sure that our clients’ interests and feature requests are taken into account in future releases.”

“We’re excited to welcome Axual into the Confluent Partner Program as they provide consulting and system integration services to clients that use Confluent Platform,” said Rich Brazeau, director of business development and alliances at Confluent. “As companies put streaming platforms at the heart of the business, enterprises are able to turn data into insights in real time. We’re looking forward to working with Axual so our mutual customers can become real-time enterprises around the world.”

Confluent Open Source is 100 percent open source and includes Apache Kafka, as well as software that extends the capabilities of Kafka and makes it easier to use. Confluent Partner Program members have the opportunity to develop robust data connectivity based on the Kafka Connect API, easily build stream processing applications with the Kafka Streams API and promote the solutions to customers worldwide.
