Like real-time apps on all of your devices? You can thank Event-Driven Architecture

Standard

The world moves in real time, and the demands on individuals, groups, and organizations are constantly changing. This may seem obvious – but many enterprises are still trying to meet their data needs in ways that don’t match this new reality. To keep up with the pace of business, companies must become agile organizations fueled by applications that access, analyze, and distribute data in real time.

Those applications must run on a data fabric that offers the elasticity to scale up and down as needed, efficiently and cost-effectively empowering people with the insights they need to do their jobs better and thus help their companies compete. The foundation of this new data fabric? Event-driven architecture.

Jeff Cotrupe has just launched the event-driven architecture initiative at MongoDB, drawing on insights from colleagues Mat Keep, Eric Holzhauer, and Rob Walters, and his expertise in real-time analytics developed with solutions providers and as an analyst at Stratecast. Current content includes a white paper that helps readers:

  • Explore how the state of the art has quickly evolved from “big data” to fast data — and the implications at an architectural level;
  • Understand requirements, components, and capabilities of event-driven architecture;
  • Learn how MongoDB is core to unleashing the power of real time across the organization; and
  • Review specific use cases and customer proof points presenting companies that are evolving and thriving as a result of working with MongoDB to deploy this innovation- and agility-enhancing architecture.

BIG DATA

Companies are starting to get a handle on Big Data, accessing all types of data from all relevant sources–but the pace of business, and of life itself, now demands they take it a step further by equipping their people with real-time insights. Jeff Cotrupe’s Stratecast report, Monetizing Core Big Data Technology: Real-time Analytics, is a 29-page analysis of arguably the hottest (and certainly the “fastest”) area of the Big Data and analytics (BDA) market.

The report asserts there is not a private or public organization on the planet that cannot benefit from real-time insights, and illustrates the point with many case study snapshots of companies, from large enterprises to SMBs, which are obtaining not just quantifiable but bankable results through the deployment of real-time analytics. The report tackles business factors shaping the need for real-time analytics; the technologies it takes to deliver it, including in-memory processing; and the need for a balanced view of real-time analytics as one of three “data speeds” companies need today (along with near-real-time and batch analytics).

The report also identifies more than 60 BDA providers, out of the nearly 400 that Stratecast tracks in the market, who deliver the most effective real-time analytics solutions. In addition, each case study snapshot identifies the vendor and specific solution(s) delivering this important capability to the client.
