Real-time analytics and The Forrester Wave Big Data Streaming Analytics Platforms

Webcast | 1:00 p.m. ET

Real-time analytics aren't optional. Organizations that can't deliver faster insights on streaming data will be left behind. Often it is too time consuming to load data into a warehouse, and opportunities might be missed.

Join Mike Gualtieri, principal analyst at Forrester Research, as he discusses how organizations can analyze real-time data sources like market data, clickstream, mobile devices, sensors and even transactions to find valuable insights that can complement existing technologies such as the data warehouse or business models. Streaming data represents a huge untapped potential across all industries for real-time marketing and next best action, immediate responses to security threats, predictive maintenance, real-time call center analytics, patient monitoring and much more.

Experience the power of now and learn how to tap into your streaming data sources. Mr. Gualtieri will present his recent research and explain how to evaluate different technologies to find the best real-time analytics strategy to address your needs.
