Imply recognized as Rising Star Partner of the Year (ISV) winner for outstanding partnership growth, helping customers drive innovation

BURLINGAME, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ImplyImply, the company founded by the original creators of Apache Druid®, is proud to announce its receipt of a 2023 Confluent Partner Award. This recognition is for partners who play a key role in empowering customers to drive innovation with real-time data.


Imply was recognized for its ongoing efforts in continually expanding its partnership with Confluent in FY23, laying the foundation for organizations to accelerate the development of real-time analytics applications. Industry-leading and digital-native organizations are leveraging these applications to interact with data at massive scale to deliver better product offerings, streamline operations, and improve customer experiences.

This foundation brings together Imply and Confluent’s cloud-managed services for Druid and Apache Kafka®, respectively, offering developers:

  • Real-time analytics on streaming data of any scale: Stream millions of events per second from Confluent to Imply Polaris, the cloud database service for Druid, with subsecond latency—making data instantly available for real-time analytics.
  • A connector-free experience: Ingest data from Confluent directly into Polaris without installing and managing a connector.
  • Cloud-native, fully-managed real-time architecture: Build real-time applications on Kafka and Druid without production risk and without infrastructure management, while accelerating time to value for real-time analytics.

Organizations can now deliver a simplified experience for analyzing Kafka streams via Druid, the real-time analytics database built for streaming data. The seamless integration of Imply Polaris with Confluent Cloud makes it easier to use real-time data in various industries and use cases, including security and fraud analytics, product analytics, IoT/telemetry analytics, and application observability.

“We’re honored to receive the Confluent Rising Star Partner of the Year Award, reflecting our deepened relationship to create better business outcomes for customers unlocking the power of leveraging real-time data,” said John Broad, Vice President, Partners & Alliances at Imply. “Working alongside the Confluent team has been transformative for us, as evidenced by our rapid year-over-year growth, and we look forward to many more years of success together.”
