At SPOUD, we accompany you on your event-streaming journey

With many years of experience, a unique skill set, and the focus on event-streaming, SPOUD supports your project from consulting, to architecture design, until engineering.

Event-Streaming Journey

SPOUD’s unique focus on event-streaming makes them the perfect partner for your data-driven future.

The event streaming journey typically follows a certain order of challenges. At SPOUD we are dedicated for years to accompany our customers on their individual journey.
Mostly, questions about security (e.g., zero trust approach), DevOps processes and automation, but also API abstractions arise from the beginning. SPOUD’s highly trained event-streaming experts consult, and support you throughout all those stages. Once the initial hurdles have been cleared, processes are introduced and technologies are established, data transparency, discoverability, collaboration, and governance come into play.

When you integrate Kafka or event-streaming in general, in your enterprise, you will observe different layers of challenges that we model as a Maslov’s pyramid. The maturity levels range from physiological needs or stable runtime to self-actualization or global impact. Let’s dive in together and determine the main challenges we observe and how we can typically get by them.

“With the help of SPOUD we were able to quickly evaluate the different options for event-streaming on the cloud. Thanks to their experience, we could assess, test and build a PoC in only three months. The PoC is now the foundation for the bigger scoped project.”
