Per Forrester, streaming analytics platforms filter, aggregate, enrich and analyze large amounts of data from multiple disparate live data sources in any data format to identify simple and complex patterns to visualize business in real-time. From financial services, to retail and eCommerce, to telecom, enterprises are adopting streaming analytics solutions to gain insights at the moment the data is born and use it for a strategic, competitive advantage.

According to the report, “Hazelcast’s in-memory data grid is an intriguing combination with streaming analytics since enrichment of a data stream from reference data is often critical to streaming analytics insights.” The report adds that the sweet spot for Hazelcast “is for enterprise use cases that require both streaming analytics and the benefits of a durable, scalable in-memory store.”

“Data-centric enterprises have spent the last few decades deploying architectures focused on gathering, storing and querying as much data as possible. The focus is now shifting on how to unify the historical data with new, real-time streaming events to realize new revenue, mitigate risk and reduce operational costs in milliseconds and even microseconds,” said Kelly Herrell, CEO of Hazelcast. “The Hazelcast platform is just the beginning of our vision to enable the work to act instantaneously on data everywhere and we believe our Wave evaluation results are evidence of our progress.”
