MSK should be easier to integrate with other solutions. It should be more flexible, integration-wise. MSK has a private network that's an out-of-the-box feature. For our case, we needed something public. We can't handle private-only. So, in order to make the data public, we had to do some extra work. It became too risky for us. That's the main reason we stopped using it.

The price of Amazon MSK is less than some competitor solutions, such as Confluence. I rate the price of Amazon MSK a four out of five.

I think you have to focus your workload, human resource and data integration strategy.  For example, if you would like to load data incrementally from some RDBMS and would like to manage data linage, you have to review the data management feature of tools. If that feature is not important and throughput is important for you, you have to focus data processing power of the tool.  There is no one best solution in the market. You have to define your requirements before selecting your criteria.  I recommend, if you would like to make a design independently of cloud vendors like GCP, AWS or Azure, you can look at the Informatica Cloud product family. There are really good solutions for data integration.
