Business efficiency is a result of incremental improvements in data management; one recent improvement is the ability to make decisions in real time when events occur. Companies need applications that offer a low-latency processing to impact events as they happen. A good example is fraud detection, where the ability to analyze data and make decision in real time allows companies to capture fraudulent activities before large losses occur.

Stream-based technologies allow big data applications to deal with low-latency decisions and provide a more agile way to develop and deploy applications. Drawing on concrete examples from retail, financial services, and telecommunications, Tugdual Grall details the various elements of a stream-based application and outlines the key capabilities of modern messaging layers like Apache Kafka and MapR Streams.

This session is sponsored by MapR Technologies.
