A flexible and easy way to connect and extend enterprise applications in a cloud-native world

What is Kyma?

Kyma is an open-source project designed natively on Kubernetes. It allows you to extend and customize cloud-based and on-premise enterprise applications in a quick and modern way, using serverless computing or microservice architecture.

Kyma provides a set of cloud-native components and services required to build modern, end-to-end user experience scenarios that follow a best-practices approach to performance, scalability, efficiency, and security. Use the familiar, idiomatic language and standardized patterns that Kyma offers to extend a single enterprise application or combine existing systems to create new functionalities.

What makes Kyma so special?

Major open-source and cloud-native projects, such as Istio, NATS, Kubeless, and Prometheus, constitute the cornerstone of Kyma. Its uniqueness, however, lies in the "glue" that holds these components together. Kyma collects those cutting-edge solutions in one place and combines them with the in-house developed features that allow you to connect and extend your enterprise applications easily and intuitively.

Key features

Application Connector

Seamless connectivity illustration
  • Simplifies and secures the connection between external systems and Kyma
  • Registers external Events and APIs in the Service Catalog and simplifies the API usage
  • Provides asynchronous communication with services and lambdas deployed in Kyma through Events
  • Manages secure access to external systems
  • Provides monitoring and tracing capabilities to facilitate operational aspects


Coherent & technology-independents illustration
  • Ensures quick deployments following a lambda function approach
  • Enables scaling independent of the core applications
  • Gives a possibility to revert changes without causing production system downtime
  • Supports the complete asynchronous programming model
  • Offers loose coupling of Event providers and consumers
  • Enables flexible application scalability and availability

Service Catalog

Open and extendable illustration
  • Connects services from external sources
  • Unifies the consumption of internal and external services thanks to compliance with the Open Service Broker standard
  • Provides a standardized approach to managing the API consumption and access
  • Eases the development effort by providing a catalog of API and Event documentation to support automatic client code generation
