Confluent is now available on SAP Store, the online marketplace for SAP and partner offerings. Confluent integrates with SAP Datasphere and delivers a secure, governed solution for accessing SAP data as fully managed data streams for customers.
“SAP Data is a vital business asset spanning so many important functions from manufacturing to supply chain, finance, human resources, and beyond,” said Erica Schultz, President of Field Operations, Confluent. “Connecting siloed teams and applications with real-time data streams creates a powerful network effect that opens new avenues for growth and innovation. We’re now giving our customers a simple way to connect their data from SAP solutions with downstream systems while avoiding the costs and complexities of open-source infrastructure management.”
Founded by the original creators of Apache Kafka®, Confluent provides businesses that use SAP solutions with a cloud-native and complete data streaming platform available everywhere it’s needed—in the cloud, across clouds, on-premises, and hybrid environments. Configured directly within SAP Datasphere, the new Confluent integration allows businesses to:
- Build real-time applications at a lower cost with fully managed data streams powered by Confluent’s Kora Engine, which reduces the total cost of ownership for Kafka by up to 60%.
- Move SAP data anywhere it needs to go and merge with third-party sources in real time via 120+ pre-built connectors, including AWS Redshift, AWS S3, Databricks, Google Cloud BigQuery, MongoDB, and Snowflake paired with a serverless offering for Apache Flink®
- Maintain strict security, compliance, and governance standards with enterprise-grade data streaming security controls, and the industry’s only fully managed governance suite for Kafka.
