The Need For Speed: Fast Data Development Trends

Insights from over 2,400 developers on the impact of “Data in Motion” in the real world

Audience: Architects, Developers

Technical level: Intermediate

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

Fast data is a new opportunity 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

The survey was published in late 2017 and represents a wide range of industries and company sizes. It is weighted toward the perspective of developers and architects.
