Stream data processing is about more than just extracting information faster. It’s about embracing wholesale change in how we build data-centric applications. The demands for availability, scalability, and resilience is forcing Fast Data architectures to become like microservice architectures. Conversely, successful organizations building microservices find their data needs grow with their organization. Hence, there is a unification happening between data and microservice architectures.
