OVO Energy is a leading independent energy company in the UK with a focus on using technology to enhance its customers’ experience. One tool they use is the smart meter, with over 1 million already installed.

These smart meters require a robust and reliable data architecture that is also able to scale rapidly, which is why they decided to place Apache Kafka at the heart of it: this is where their relationship with Aiven started.

But, their needs didn’t stop with Kafka. They needed a bespoke managed package to allow them to focus on their core business. Download the case study below to find out how they built one with the Aiven platform.
