It is the largest ecosystem of technology vendors, consulting and system integrators as well as authorized training partners offering Kafka-based solutions and services. By joining the Confluent Partner Program, HVR allows its customers to execute multi-purpose streaming, continuously delivering data from on-premises or cloud-based relational databases, such as Oracle, SQL Server, SAP HANA, and packaged applications like SAP ECC, to their Kafka platforms, moving data efficiently and securely for real-time analytics.
“HVR is committed to helping our customers adopt new, cutting-edge technologies to support their data needs,” said John Sedleniek, Vice President of Sales, Americas for HVR. “For those seeking fast, reliable, and secure continuous integration between relational databases and Kafka-based streaming platforms, Confluent and HVR provide an ideal combination.”
