Five Early Challenges Of Building Streaming Fast Data Applications

There is a unification happening between data and microservice architectures: the demand for availability, scalability, and resilience is forcing Fast Data architectures to become like microservice architectures, while organizations building microservices find their data requirements are also evolving. At the center of it all is stream data processing, which is about more than just extracting information faster. It’s about embracing wholesale change in how organizations build data-centric applications.

Yet getting started with streaming and Fast Data systems provides a number of tough questions and challenges to enterprises, which we’ve encapsulated into 5 major categories:
