Apache Big Data Seville – Keynote: Stream Processing as a Foundational Paradigm and Apache Flink’s Approach to It – Stephan Ewen

Keynote: Stream Processing as a Foundational Paradigm and Apache Flink’s Approach to It – Stephan Ewen

Stream Processing is emerging as a popular paradigm for data processing architectures, because it handles the continuous nature of most data and computation and gets rid of artificial boundaries and delays.

The fact that stream processing is gaining rapid adoption is also due to more powerful and maturing technology (much of it open source at the ASF) that has solved many of the hard technical challenges.

We discuss Apache Flink’s approach to high performance stream processing with state, strong consistency, low latency, and sophisticated handling of time. With such building blocks, Apache Flink can handle classes of problems previously considered out of reach for stream processing. We also take a sneak preview at the next steps for Flink.
