Last week in Stream Processing & Analytics 8/9/2016

This is the 26th installment of my blog series around Stream Processing and Analytics. So this is basically the first 1/2 year of this blog series. Hope to at least continue for another 26 weeks to make it a full year 🙂

This week I especially like to mention the 5 tips by Chris Raphael on using Streaming Analytics Software:

  1. What’s the business value?
  2. Analyze and enrich multiple streams of data
  3. Make local decisions
  4. Filter data, but don’t throw it out
  5. Don’t forget integration

And today a beta version of Apache NiFi 1.0.0 has been released. The most noticeable change is the “UI Refresh”; the entire UI has been redone to provide a better user experience. I installed it quickly and imported one of the templates to get this screenshot of the new UI:
