Introducing Lightbend Fast Data Platform: A Guided Way To Manage Data In Motion For Streaming Applications

Companies are moving from systems designed for data "at rest" in data warehouses and embracing the value of data "in motion" at the edge–whether from user data, sensors or humans. Extracting information from incoming data as quickly as possible has become a competitive advantage. Stream processing is the best option and it has sparked new tools, frameworks, and architecture patterns for developers creating applications and systems designed specifically for real-time data. 

I sat down with Dr. Dean Wampler, Office of the CTO and Big Data Architect at Lightbend, we discuss how streaming data is shaking things up, and how the upcoming Lightbend Fast Data Platform is bringing Fast Data to enterprises looking to modernize today.
