Whitepaper: Fast Data Application Requirements for CTOs and Architects
The availability and abundance of fast, new data presents an enormous opportunity for businesses to extract intelligence, gain insight, and personalize interactions of all types. As applications with new analytics capabilities are created, what were two separate functions – the application and the analytics – are beginning to merge. CTOs and development managers now realize they need a unifying architecture to support the development of data-heavy applications that rely on a fast-data, big-data workflow. This white paper looks at the requirements of the fast data workflow and proposes solution patterns for the most common problems software development organizations must resolve to build applications – and apps – capable of managing fast and big data.
