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.

The significant problems we face cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them -- Albert Einstein
Please do not post the same question twice. It just confuses people.
Some people, when well-known sources tell them that fire will burn them, don't put their hands in the fire.
Some people, being skeptical, will put their hands in the fire, get burned, and learn not to put their hands in the fire.
And some people, believing that they know better than well-known sources, will claim it's a lie, put their hands in the fire, and continue to scream it's a lie even as their hands burn down to charred stumps.
