Why KaDeck?

End-to-end data transparency

By giving employees direct insight into data and processes in Apache Kafka, communication is improved, errors are avoided and work is accelerated.

No infrastructure but data monitoring

KaDeck is no infrastructure monitoring software. The focus is instead on the data and application level to improve the operation and development of applications and the traceability of data.

Rapid prototyping & quality assurance

KaDeck enables rapid prototyping. As departments have direct access to the data and prototypes, these can be professionally examined at an early stage.

Designed to speed up your daily work

KaDeck's intuitive design keeps away accidental complexity¹ and lets you focus on your work.

Everything you need

The features include header decoding of records, comprehensive record ingestion, intuitive filtering and data monitoring, security for clusters and schema registry, an embedded Kafka environment for local testing, and much more.
