Streaming Analytics Comparison of Open Source Frameworks, Products, Cloud Services

Posted in Analytics, Big Data, Business Intelligence, Cloud, Hadoop on November 15th, 2016 by Kai Wähner

In November 2016, I am at Big Data Spain in Madrid for the first time. A great conference with many awesome speakers and sessions about very hot topics such as Apache Hadoop, Spark Spark, Streaming Processing / Streaming Analytics and Machine Learning. If you are interested in big data, then this conference is for you! My two talks:

  • How to Apply Machine Learning to Real Time Processing” (see slides and video recording from a similar conference talk).
  • Comparison of Streaming Analytics Options” (the reason for this blog post; an updated version of my talk from JavaOne 2015)

Comparison of Open Source IoT Integration Frameworks

Posted in API Management, Cloud, Cloud-Native, Microservices, SOA on November 3rd, 2016 by Kai Wähner

In November 2016, I attended Devoxx conference in Casablanca. Around 1500 developers participated. A great event with many awesome speakers and sessions. Hot topics this year besides Java: Open Source Frameworks, Microservices (of course!), Internet of Things (including IoT Integration), Blockchain, Serverless Architectures.

I had three talks:

  • How to Apply Machine Learning to Real Time Processing
  • Comparison of Open Source IoT Integration Frameworks
  • Tools in Action – Live Demo of Open Source Project Flogo

In addition, I was interviewed by the Voxxed team about Big Data, Machine Learning and Internet of Things. The video will be posted on Voxxed website in the next weeks.

Open Source Project Flogo – Overview, Architecture and Live Demo

Posted in API Management, Cloud, Cloud-Native, Docker, ESB, Microservices, Middleware, SOA on November 3rd, 2016 by Kai Wähner

In October 2016, the open source IoT integration framework Flogo was published as first developer preview. This blog post is intended to give a first overview about Flogo. You can either browse through the slide deck or watch the videos.

Flogo

What is Project Flogo?

In short, Flogo is an ultra-lightweight integration framework powered by Go programming language. It is open source under the permissive BSD license and easily extendable for your own use cases. Flogo is used to develop IoT edge apps or cloud-native / serverless microservices. Therefore, it is complementary to other integration solutions and IoT cloud platforms.

Comparison of Stream Processing Frameworks and Products

Posted in Analytics, Business Intelligence, Hadoop, In Memory on October 25th, 2015 by Kai Wähner

See how products, libraries, and frameworks that full under ‘streaming data analytics’ use cases are categorized and compared.

Streaming Analytics processes data in real time while it is in motion. This concept and technology emerged several years ago in financial trading, but it is growing increasingly important these days due to digitalization and Internet of Things (IoT). The following slide deck from a recent talk at a conference covers:

  • Real world success stories from different industries (Manufacturing, Retailing, Sports)
  • Alternative Frameworks and Products for Stream Processing
  • Complementary Relationship to Data Warehouse, Apache Hadoop, Statistics, Machine Learning, Open Source R, SAS, Matlab, etc.
