Title: Effective Real-time Stream Processing Made Easy with Hazelcast
Abstract: Real-time stream processing is growing exponentially in recent years, businesses need to gather insights from real-time data as soon as it’s generated. To do this, developers and software architects use various pipelines and tools to capture and process data in motion. Real-time stream processing has its own challenges such as windowing, event time and late events, streaming fault tolerance, and processing guarantees. Hazelcast provides an effective solution for real-time stream processing, the talk will cover best practices for real-time stream processing, focusing on performance and simplicity.
