The business value of data decreases rapidly after it is created, particularly in use cases such as fraud prevention, cybersecurity, & real-time system monitoring. The high-volume, high-velocity datasets used to feed these use cases often contain valuable, but perishable, insights that must be acted upon immediately.
In order to maximize the value of their data enterprises must fundamentally change their approach to processing real-time data to focusing on reducing their decision latency on the perishable insights that exist within their real-time data streams. Thereby enabling the organization to act upon them while the window of opportunity is open.
Generating timely insights in a high-volume, high-velocity data environment is challenging for a multitude of reasons. As the volume of data increases, so does the amount of time required to transmit it back to the datacenter & process it. Secondly, as the velocity of the data increases, the faster the data & the insights derived from it lose value.
