Fast Data

Fast data is the application of big data analytics to smaller data sets in near-real or real-time in order to solve a problem or create business value. The goal is to quickly gather and mine structured and unstructured data so that action can be taken.

Fast data is data in motion, streaming into applications and computing environments from hundreds of thousands to millions of endpoints – mobile devices, sensor networks, financial transactions, stock tick feeds, logs, retail systems, telco call routing, authorization systems, and more.

Systems and applications designed to take advantage of fast data enable companies to make real-time, per-event decisions that have direct, immediate impact on business interactions and observations. These systems operationalize the learning and insights that companies derive from big data.
