O'Reilly Webcast

In the era of universal connectivity, the faster you can move data from point A to B the better. Equipping your organization with the ability to make frequent decisions in an instant offers information and intelligence advantages, such as staying one step ahead of the competition. This is especially important when incoming data is arriving at a relentless pace, in high volume, and from a variety of devices.

As our customers tap into new sources of data or modify to existing data pipelines, we are often asked questions like: What technologies should we consider? Where can we reduce data latency? How can we simplify data architectures?

To eliminate the guesswork, we teamed up with Ben Lorica, Chief Data Scientist at O’Reilly Media to host a webcast centered around building real-time data pipelines.

Watch the recorded webcast to learn:

  • Ideal technology stacks for building real-time data pipelines
  • How to simplify Lambda architectures
  • How to use memory-optimized technologies like Kafka, Spark, and in-memory databases to build real-time data pipelines
  • Use cases for real-time workloads, and the value they offer
  • Examples of data architectures used by companies like Pinterest and Comcast
