Real-time data – and hence real-time data processing, as in stream processing – is increasingly becoming the de facto standard. More and more companies are no longer asking “why should we do this in real-time?”, but rather “why shouldn’t we?”. This means that stream processing is fast becoming an essential technology, and that there has never been a better time to adopt and make use of it.
In light of these factors, this report takes you through the basics of what stream processing is and what it does, then delves deeper to examine market trends and compare vendor solutions within the space.
