We’ve become a world of instant information. We carry mobile devices that answer questions in seconds and we track our morning runs from screens on our wrists. News spreads immediately across our social feeds, and traffic alerts direct us away from road closures. As consumers, we have come to expect answers now, in real time.
Until recently, businesses that were seeking information about their customers, products, or applications, in real time, were challenged to do so. Streaming data, such as website clickstreams, application logs, and IoT device telemetry, could be ingested but not analyzed in real time for any kind of immediate action.
