ABOUT THE EVENT
This discussion will focus on the use cases for a streams first architecture, and how streams can enable real-time in an big data environment. Use cases from the retail and financial industries will be used to illustrate the basic building blocks needed to enable real-time analytics using streams as the data sources. One surprising outcome is that batch analytics becomes much easier and more clear as well.
