Ebb & Flow: Data in Motion

As the world around us is becoming increasingly instrumented and connected, managing streaming data effectively is one of the major challenges faced by data architects and engineers. In this presentation, learn how the components of Hortonworks Data Flow (HDF) can be used together to address aspects of data flow management and streaming analytics, including Apache NiFi, Apache Kafka, Apache Storm, and Hortonworks Schema Registry and Streaming Analytics Manager. We will review an end-to-end solution focused on alarm fatigue in the Healthcare space that will demonstrate the capabilities of a comprehensive data in-motion platform like HDF.
