The team at Solace is excited to announce that we have pledged to be a Customer First vendor in the event stream processing market with PubSub+ Event Broker and PubSub+ Event Portal. To learn what an event streaming platform is, take a look at my most recent blog post.

Solace takes great pride in this program commitment, as customer feedback continues to be a critical priority, and shapes our products and services. As part of the requirements for the Customer First program, Solace will:

  • Ensure that every user of our products has an equal opportunity to share their honest feedback, regardless of whether it is positive or negative
  • Continue to invite a fully representative set of users/customers to write and submit reviews
  • Make sure all reviews submitted to the site comply with Gartner’s Community Guidelines
  • Comply with the Gartner Peer Insights Incentive Policy when soliciting customer reviews
  • Designate an employee to meeting the day-to-day responsibilities of participating in and promoting this program

To learn more about this program, or to read the reviews written about our products by the IT professionals who use them, please see our reviews on Gartner Peer Insights. Here’s a couple of my favorite soundbites:

Great event streaming product for multi-cloud, excellent customer centric service.”

If you are doing Event Driven Architecture, look no further.”

To all our customers who submitted reviews, thank you! These honest reviews mold our products and our customer journey, and we always welcome both positive and critical feedback.

If you have a Solace story to share, we encourage you to join the Gartner Peer Insights crowd and weigh in with your own review.
