Hi Bill,

Excited to see your upcoming book on latest sensation in enterprise technology area.

I attended an overview session on Kafka recently and I have couple of questions on which I want to request your opinion -

How do you differentiate the traditional Enterprise service buses with ETL combined with Kafka. As an introduction, Kafka is doing real time fast processing of streams but we have other systems like Tibco FTL and IBM MQ which have achieved lightening speed of millions transactions per second. How does kafka provides upper-hand with existing products ?

Another question is do you think that kafka will be able to replace existing batch systems. With scenarios with high availability , kafka may process transactional data quickly but overnight batch may still become bottle neck. What are the few practices you want to share with audiences here about integrating kafka with exiting systems.

Thank You again for bringing the detailed book.

Please do not post the same question twice. It just confuses people.
