This paper discusses and evaluates Impetus StreamAnalytix, an analytics platform for both real time, streaming data and for batch processing. StreamAnalytix operates on the principle that open source technologies in the streaming analytics space are in many cases mature enough to offer significant advantages over proprietary solutions (such as future proofing and community support), but that orchestrating and integrating several of these technologies together into a complete, enterprise ready solution is complicated, slow and expensive. Therefore, Impetus has chosen to build StreamAnalytix on top of popular open source technologies, combining them into a single offering within the product, and saving you the trouble. It does this while providing enterprise level scalability and support. In essence, it is an open source powered, enterprise grade platform.
