Third Quarter 2021 Results
On 4th November 2021, CFLT reported third-quarter 2021 results. The company reported total revenue of $103 million with Confluent Cloud revenue of $27 million. CFLT sustained year-over-year increase acceleration in total revenue, Confluent Cloud revenue, and existing contractual obligations in our first quarter, which was a milestone for the business. The power of the statistics platform and the robustness of the go-to-market approach is demonstrated by the high dollar-based net retention rate, which once again topped 130 percent in the third quarter.
The company also reported that because some components cannot be fairly foreseen due to their high unpredictability, complexity, and poor visibility, a conversion of forward-looking non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss per share to the most directly comparable GAAP metrics is not possible without undue effort. The timing of employee stock transactions, as well as unforeseen variances in the stock price, have a serious influence on the measures and effects of the stock-based recoverable amount specific to share option awards and employer payroll tax-related items on employee stock transactions.
CFLT announced the first governance package for streaming data in the business on 14th September 2021. Stream Governance, which is available as a fully managed cloud solution, provides a simple, self-service approach for discovering, understanding, and trusting the real-time data that flows through today’s enterprises. Moreover, the distributed teams have now quick and simple access to the data they need to build more real-time apps and run their businesses while ensuring data security and privacy.
This gives businesses a secure approach to increase their usage of data in motion and build a central nervous system that connects different apps and systems. Teams can uncover totally new use cases that generate innovation and surpass consumer expectations by making streaming data available to more individuals. The one who succeeds in the next wave of digital disruption will be determined by their ability to develop and function around a central nervous system.
However, as the number of data sources grows, it’s more difficult than ever to properly comprehend and safely handle all of the data flowing through a company. Lastly, this information is held by a small group of streaming specialists, posing unknown hazards, and preventing numerous teams from developing applications based on real-time data.
