Swimming in the data river, or, when streaming analytics isnt
The dirty secret of most streaming analytics technologies is that they are just stream processors: they sit on a stream & continuously compute the results of a particular query. Theyre good for alerting, keeping a dashboard up-to-date in real time, & streaming ETL, but theyre not good at powering apps that give you true insight into what is happening: for this you need the ability to explore, slice/dice, drill down, & search into the data.This talk will cover the current state of the streaming analytics world, what Druid brings to the table, & some of the technical details behind its design & its integration with Kafka.
