Last week in Stream Processing & Analytics 4/4/2016

This is the 8th installment of my blog series around Stream Processing and Analytics. It’s two days later, due to some technical difficulties. Forgot power adapter at home on Monday and I’m traveling 😉 87 EUR and one day later I’m back in business 🙂

As expected, there were quite a lot of topics around stream processing and streaming analytics at the Strata conference last week.

Jay Krebs and Neha Narkhede from Confluent both mentioned it on Twitter:

And Jack Vaughan summarized it in his blog article:  “Moving streams of data is a must in many modern applications. As a result, streaming analytics applications with Spark Streaming, Kafka and other components are coming to the big data forefront.

Definitely very interesting times ahead 🙂
