Harnessing the Power of Data, Together.

The world’s leading enterprises are using Solace’s event streaming and management platform to transform their organizations by harnessing the power of events.

The more quickly an enterprise can get information about events to where it needs to be, the more effectively a business can react to opportunities and improve the customer experience. That’s where an event broker (modern messaging-oriented-middleware) comes in.
