What is Data Streaming?

Data streaming is a technology that processes data in real time as soon as it's generated. It's used in various industries, from multiplayer games to stock trading platforms. Read the ebook to learn more about data streaming, its use cases, and examples.

How Streaming Data Works - Overview, Examples, and Architecture

Data collection is only one piece of the puzzle. Today’s enterprise businesses simply cannot wait for data to be processed in batch form. Instead, everything from fraud detection and stock market platforms, to ride share apps and e-commerce websites rely on real-time event streams.

Paired with streaming data, applications evolve to not only integrate data, but process, filter, analyze, and react to events as they happen in real-time. This opens a new plethora of use cases such as real-time fraud detection, Netflix recommendations, or a seamless shopping experience across multiple devices that updates as you shop.
