Real-Time Analytics - Future Is Now (by Juwel Rana)
In 2011, Facebook introduces real time analytics for social plugins to give better analytics on how people interact with digital content and to help optimize digital space in real-time. According to Ericsson, “Real-time analytics yield “fresh data” insights, which can support a far greater range of use cases, including proactive operations, agile customer care, and experience-based marketing.”
Today, Real-time data processing becomes possible as data processing moves from being costly, isolated and offline to being affordable, linked and online. This, in turn, leads to improved monitoring of services and faster identification of pattern changes. This enables immediate and accurate decision making, which is key for modern telecommunications operators.
In general, after capturing or aggregating data, modern cross-domain analytics architecture provides two types of data channels such as streaming data and batch/historical data to the query engine for visualization and exposure purposes. However, the area of multi-source streaming data analytics hasn’t been that explored in the last decades. This research seminar is about challenges, opportunities, industry driven use-cases for the research domain of real time data analytics.
