Today we added connectivity to Apache Kafka. In a first step, it is possible to publish twin events, messages, live commands and events to Kafka topics.

Since the last addition to Ditto’s connectivity which added MQTT connectivity, the connectivity feature got a lot of stabilization and new smaller features, e.g. the recent addition of placeholder functions.

Returning to the Kafka integration Ditto can now, for example, whenever a digital twin is changed (e.g. a device updated some state data), publish a twin event to a Kafka topic.

If you already rely on Apache Kafka as a source for your data lake or analytics, integrating Ditto and its digital twins is now super easy.
