Leading companies that are getting the most out of their data are not focusing on queries and data lakes; they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices for three use cases in ad/media, financial services, and healthcare to show how customers develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first approach is fundamentally different from traditional applications.
Along the way, Jack covers examples of how customers identified ways to simplify data streams in a publish-and-subscribe framework (for example, how focusing on a stream of electronic medical records simplified the deployment of real-time applications for hospitals, clinics, and insurance companies). Jack also details how a data-first approach can lead to rapid deployment of additional real-time applications as well as centralize and simplify many data management and administration tasks.
