If you’re doing real time analytics – or just curious – check out the next Utah Data Engineering Meetup. We have not one, but two talks from some heavy hitters in the data space – Introduction to the Data River and Apache Druid w/ Jon King (Imply) , and Real-world Messaging Architectures and Patterns w/ Thor Sigurjonsson (Overstock). You definitely don’t want to miss this event.
The notion of a Data River is particularly interesting to the Ternary crew. We’re seeing more and more companies moving beyond batch analytics, and introducing real time data infrastructure for their operational analytics. We’ll have a future post on the differences between business and operational analytics. Suffice to say, as data flows in an increasingly real time fashion, companies will move beyond the data lake, and into the data river.
