Getting the greatest business value from streaming data requires new approaches to real-time operations and analytics.
According to TDWI’s survey on managing big data, roughly half of user organizations said they are already managing and leveraging streaming data that’s generated frequently or continuously by sensors, machines, geospatial devices, and Web servers. However, most of these users are merely capturing and storing streaming data for offline study, whereas they need to adopt the emerging technologies and methods for “streaming analytics” – that is, the real-time, continuous analysis of streaming data. This would enable user organizations to analyze streaming data as it arrives, then take immediate action for the highest business value.
