This month’s meetup will be on a modern streaming platform with a case study on Apache Pulsar. The presentation will be by Jayaram Nagarajan of Capital One and hosted at Improving.
Many industry segments have been grappling with fast data (high-volume, high-velocity data). The enterprises in these industry segments need to process this fast data just in time to derive insights and act upon it quickly. Such tasks include but are not limited to enriching data with additional information, filtering and reducing noisy data, providing continuous insights on business operations, and sharing these insights just in time with customers. In order to realize these results, an enterprise needs to build an end-to-end data processing system, from data acquisition, data ingestion, data processing, data storing to serving and sharing the results. This presents a significant challenge, due to the presence of multiple messaging frameworks and several streaming computing frameworks and storage frameworks for real-time data.
We will be looking at one such modern platform called Apache Pulsar and how it stands out in the competition.
