Lumina Datamatics and Gutenberg Technology partner

Lumina Datamatics Inc. (LDI), a provider of content, technology, and learning analytics solutions, and Gutenberg Technology (GT), provider of a content management and distribution platform for education and training organizations, announced the formation of a new strategic partnership. Lumina Datamatics will integrate its rights and permissions and other platforms including ARTY, freelancer management with the GT platform and will license the new solution to further streamline content production for their portfolio of clients. In turn, GT’s customers will benefit from Lumina Datamatics services, such as transforming legacy content into digital-first courseware and support for production processes that cannot be fully automated.

Content publishers in both K-12 and Higher Education are adopting a digital-first model to meet their customers’ needs in real time. Together LDI and GT bring a new, effective way to manage knowledge and shape the future of content operations. In addition to the education content market, both organizations collaborate with universities, colleges, and corporations to enrich content and streamline program launch processes. This collaboration will be rolled out to existing and new clients. ▪︎

Elastic and Confluent to enhance Kafka and Elasticsearch experience

Elastic announced an expanded strategic partnership with Confluent, Inc. to deliver the best integrated product experience to the Apache Kafka and Elasticsearch community. Through this alliance, Elastic and Confluent will enhance existing product integrations and jointly develop new capabilities to help users easily combine the benefits of the Elastic Stack and Kafka. Elastic and Confluent plan further enhancements to the product experience for users by:

  • Strengthening the native integration between Elastic Cloud and Confluent Cloud
  • Enriching the Elasticsearch Service Sink Connector in Confluent
  • Developing packaged joint solutions for specific use cases
  • Introducing easier ways to output data from Kafka in an Elastic Common Schema

Elastic has long provided native support for Kafka to help centralized logging and monitoring customers monitor the health and performance of their Kafka pipelines in Elasticsearch. In addition, users have the choice of a jointly built and fully managed Elasticsearch Service Sink Connector in Confluent Cloud that eliminates the need for customers to take on the difficult task of managing their own Kafka clusters. This gives organizations the ability to seamlessly stream data moving through Kafka into Elasticsearch on all major cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud.
