Last week in Stream Processing & Analytics 4/11/2016

This is the 9th installment of my blog series around Stream Processing and Analytics.

First I have to mention a blog article I have somehow missed last month. It nicely compares the various streaming frameworks available from the Apache software foundation.


Last week Forrester published it’s updated Forrester Wave for Big Data Streaming Analytics products. Forrester Research defines Big Data Streaming Analytics as

Software that can filter, aggregate, enrich, and analyze a high throughput of data from multiple, disparate live data sources and in any data format to identify simple and complex patterns to provide applications with context to detect opportune situations, automate immediate actions, and dynamically adapt.

Here the Leaders, the Strong Performers and Contenders as seen by Forrester:
