Audience: Architects, Managers

Technical level: Intermediate

The digitalization of the world has fueled unprecedented growth in data, creating huge implications for how enterprises interact with nascent information to create future business opportunities.

Real-time streaming data (also known as “Fast Data”) presents new opportunities made possible by emerging technologies and, in many cases, by new approaches to established technologies. Like its Big Data counterpart, Fast Data is surrounded by hype and confusion.

To better understand the current state of Fast Data, Lightbend surveyed 2,457 global developers to get their real-world take on:

  • Alignment between Fast Data and business value
  • Impacts on software development and tool choices
  • Patterns and challenges facing early adopters

This report for Managers and Architects extrapolates on these findings to help you better understand a complex ecosystem of rapidly evolving pieces.
