As the volume and variety of information contextually relevant to business grow at an exponential rate, Organizations are looking for new means to react quickly and accurately to please their customers and to gain competitive advantage. Existing approaches too often either arrive at the wrong decisions based on insufficient subsets of data, or they arrive at the correct decisions but too late to be of any usefulness.
With InfoSphere Streams, you can react to events and trends correctly and immediately while it's still possible to improve business outcomes. Government, Telecommunications, Healthcare, Energy and Utilities, Finance, Manufacturing, or any industry will benefit whenever there is a requirement for immediate and accurate analysis and decisions based on what is happening right now.
This meetup will:
· Provide a common understanding of Stream Computing
· Provide a brief overview of the InfoSphere Streams Architecture
· Introduce the InfoSphere Streams Runtime Environment
· Introduce InfoSphere Streams Studio
· Introduce the SPL programming language
· Introduce the Streams Mining Toolkit and integration with Data Mining Tools
