When this same concept is applied to other industries of business, the possibilities which can be reached are endless. The Internet of Business recently published an article best describing what data streaming is and what it means for business. Some of the key takeaways include:
• When we add streaming capabilities to data infrastructures, we add the ability to automate real-time data flows.
• Real-time data flows, or streaming data sources, can come from many areas in an organization’s data landscape, including in-field units that share sensor-based data, social media feeds (for sentiment analysis), or a variety of internal systems.
• A streaming data architecture makes the core assumption that data is continuous and always moving, in contrast to the traditional assumption that data is static. Vendors are now buidling this increasingly important aspect of data streaming into their platforms. (Adrian Bridgwater, internetofbusiness.com)
