Top Executive: CEO Jay Kreps
Confluent offers a data platform, based on the Apache Kafka open-source messaging system, for collecting, managing and analyzing streaming data in real time – a major challenge in the worlds of big data and the Internet of Things.
Confluent was launched in September 2014 to provide technology and services that help businesses adopt and use Kafka. The company was co-founded by Jay Kreps, Neha Narkhede and Jun Rao, who created Kafka while working at LinkedIn.
In March the company launched the Confluent Partner Program to support the growing ecosystem of technology developers, systems integrators and consultants in the Kafka and Confluent market.
