Real-time data streams and processing are crossing into the mainstream – they will become the norm, not the exception, according to IDC

The drivers are, by now, familiar: Cloud, IoT and 5G have increased the amount of data generated by – and flowing through – organizations. They have also accelerated the pace of business, with organizations rolling out new services and deploying software faster than ever.

They want to take effective decisions in real time in response to changing events and market conditions. This has been accelerated due to technology disruptors, both large and small, driving a new normal of more intelligent applications and experiences.

We are therefore experiencing a burgeoning renaissance in streaming technologies – from data-flow management to distributed messaging and stream processing, and more.
