Discovering what data is generated by your different real-time apps and teams can take months.
That’s before even processing it.
Lenses lets anyone explore and process data in one DataOps environment.

Real-time data catalog

First, use the catalog to explore metadata across your real-time data platform & apps including Kafka and Elasticsearch.

  • Automatic data discovery
  • Google-search metadata
  • Real time topology and lineage

Explore payload with SQL

Next enrich, transform and filter streaming data using SQL semantics. No coding required.

  • Explore payload across any serialization
  • Create rules for data masking
  • Restrict data access with security namespaces

Real-time data processing with SQL

Then filter, aggregate, transform and reshape streaming data.

  • Deploy over your existing Kubernetes or Connect infrastructure
  • Build in monitoring & alerting
  • Integrate data into 3rd party stores with connectors
