We believe it is required reading for leaders of any real-time-sensitive digital business. The report presents the business benefits modern EDA provides beyond what is possible using connected APIs, as well as enables readers to assess where […]

In today’s digitally driven world, processing streaming data in real-time is a requirement for business success. The introduction of 5G networks will only increase the data volume and speed requirements that are already putting pressure on traditional data architectures.
Modern applications have two primary needs: performance and ease of operations, both at scale. Performance The performance consists of two aspects: throughput and latency. Both are driven by applications becoming machine-driven i.e. API-driven. Humans will wait much longer than an API will since APIs have strict latency expectations due to timeouts. When you take a […]

This has created an environment of vendor lock-in and staggered progress due to lack of agility. A side effect of this is equipment and infrastructure obsolescence at a rate that is not desirable for carriers. At the same […]
