Imperva: Building Real-Time Streaming Data Pipelines Using Amazon MSK

Imperva blocks trillions of attacks on the internet every month using their suite of products, and in this episode of This is my Architecture you will see how they ingest all this data from individual products and sensors and help customers prevent attacks. Peter gives you a behind the scenes implementation of this architecture using AWS MSK which reduced the entire processing and enrichment time to less than 3 minutes. You will also hear how this data is sent to Imperva’s research data lakes and using S3 and EMR to process this data helps them quickly identify new attacks and push this out to their customers.

4 Real-Time Data Analytics Predictions for 2021

Data management, analytics, data science, and real-time systems will converge this year enabling new automated and self-learning solutions for real-time business operations.

The global pandemic of 2020 has upended social behaviors and business operations. Working from home is the new normal for many, and technology has accelerated and opened new lines of business. Retail and travel have been hit hard, and tech-savvy companies are reinventing e-commerce and in-store channels to survive and thrive. In biotech, pharma, and healthcare, analytics command centers have become the center of operations, much like network operation centers in transport and logistics during pre-COVID times.

While data management and analytics have been critical to strategy and growth over the last decade, COVID-19 has propelled these functions into the center of business operations. Data science and analytics have become a focal point for business leaders to make critical decisions like how to adapt business in this new order of supply and demand and forecast what lies ahead.

In the next year, I anticipate a convergence of data, analytics, integration, and DevOps to create an environment for rapid development of AI-infused applications to address business challenges and opportunities. We will see a proliferation of API-led microservices developer environments for real-time data integration, and the emergence of data hubs as a bridge between at-rest and in-motion data assets, and event-enabled analytics with deeper collaboration between data scientists, DevOps, and ModelOps developers. From this, an ML engineer persona will emerge.

5 Best-Performing Tools that Build Real-Time Data Pipeline

Immediate data streaming has become prominent in big data analytics and so are the real-time data pipeline tools

Real-time analytics has become a hectic task for organisations looking to make data-driven business decisions. The data pipeline is at the heart of the company’s operations. It allows organisations to take control of the data and use it to generate revenue-driven insights. However, managing the data pipeline involves tasks like data extractions, transformations, loading into databases, orchestration, monitoring and much more. As data becomes more and more accessible, the need to draw inferences and create strategies based on current trends has been essential for survival and growth. The task is not just about data processing and creating pipeline, but doing it in real-time. Immediate data streaming has become prominent in the field of big data analytics, and so are the real-time data streaming tools. According to Fortune Business Insights, the growing demand for data streaming tools is reflected in the fast-growing demand for big data technologies, which is expected to grow from US$36.8 billion in 2018 to US$104.3 billion in 2026 with a CAGR of 14% during the forecast period. Henceforth, Analytics Insight brings you a list of data streaming tools that work best to take data-driven decisions.

Operational Analytics: Building a Real-time Data Environment for Business

Disruptive technologies, cloud computing and IoT devices continue to evolve and proliferate. As a result, businesses are generating and collecting more data than ever before. However, the challenge here is not gathering the data, but using it in the right way. Businesses are leveraging futuristic analytics features to better understand the data. One such solution is operational analytics.

Data is exponentially increasing every movement. Every time a customer interacts with a website or device, an unimaginable amount of data is generated. Meanwhile, when employees use a company-issued tablet or device to do their jobs, they add more data to the company’s data house. The data goes useless if it is not utilized properly. Henceforth, businesses are adopting operational analytics to increase workplace efficiency, driving competitive advantages, and delighting customers. Operational analytics is at the beginning of gaining ground in the business industry. A survey conducted by Capgemini Consulting on around 600 executives from the US, Europe and China suggests that over 70% of organizations now put more emphasis on operations than on consumer-focused processes for their analytics initiatives. However, only 39% of organizations in the survey said they have extensively integrated their operational analytics initiatives with their business processes and barely 29% of them have successfully achieved their desired objectives from their initiatives.

Your Data Architecture: Simple Best Practices for Your Data Strategy

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you should probably think about your data architecture and possible best practices.

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you most probably need to think about your data architecture and consider possible best practices. Gaining a competitive edge, remaining customer-centric to the greatest extent possible, and streamlining processes to get on-the-button outcomes can all be traced back to an organization’s capacity to build a future-ready data architecture.

In what follows, we offer a short overview of the overarching capabilities of data architecture. These include user-centricity, elasticity, robustness, and the capacity to ensure the seamless flow of data at all times. Added to these are automation enablement, plus security and data governance considerations. These points from our checklist for what we perceive to be an anticipatory analytics ecosystem.

Apache Hudi: How Uber Gets Data a Ride to its Destination

Apache Hudi provides tools to ingest data into HDFS or cloud storage, and is designed to get data into the hands of users and analysts quickly.

At a busy, data-intensive enterprise such as Uber, the volumes of real-time data that need to move through its systems on a minute-by-minute basis reaches epic proportions. This calls for a data lake extraordinaire, in which data can immediately be extracted and leveraged across a range of functions, from back-end business applications to front-end mobile apps. Uber depends on up-to-the-minute bookings and alerts as part of its appeal to customers, so its reliance on real-time data streaming platforms is off-the-charts. It has turned to Apache Hudi, an emerging platform that brings stream processing to big data, providing fresh data while being an order of magnitude efficient over traditional batch processing.

I recently had the opportunity to moderate a webcast about Apache Hudi with Nishith Agarwal and Sivabalan Narayanan, both engineers with Uber. Both Agarwal and Narayanan are active members of the Hudi programming committee.

The Hudi data lake project was originally developed at Uber in 2016, open-sourced in 2017, and submitted to the Apache Incubator in January 2019. Apache Hudi data lake technology enables stream processing on top of Apache Hadoop compatible cloud stores and distributed file systems. The solution provides tools to ingest data onto HDFS or cloud storage, as well as provide an incremental approach to resource-intensive ETL, Hive, or Spark jobs. It is designed to get data into the hands of users and analysts much quicker.
