During my tenure as a Product Manager at Splunk, I had the chance to meet with several Fortune 500 customers who wanted to create a central data transfer backbone. Their goal was to be able to swap or add new destinations for their data, like a warehouse, an application consumer, or a solution like Splunk. Such a backbone would allow IT or other stakeholders to mix and match different technologies without any changes in the most dreaded part of a pipeline, the ingestion layer. More often than not, that backbone is Apache Kafka and its usage has been championed by several high profile tech companies, like LinkedIn -the creators of the project- or Netflix.
