Making sense of stream processing

There has been an explosion of innovation in open source stream processing over the past few years. Frameworks such as Apache Spark and Apache Storm give developers stream abstractions on which they can develop applications; Apache Beam provides an API abstraction, enabling developers to write code independent of the underlying framework, while tools such as Apache NiFi and StreamSets Data Collector provide a user interface abstraction, allowing data engineers to define data flows from high-level building blocks with little or no coding.

Data to decisions: New trends in leveraging business intelligence

As the Data-to-Decisions (D2D) analyst at Constellation Research, I cover a broad domain, from data platforms, orchestration, and integration up into the business domain, where business intelligence (BI), advanced analytics, embedded services, and real-time decisioning help to put insight into action. Twice each year (Q1 and Q3) I make note of the things that impress me through Constellation ShortLists, which are freely available to the public. Constellation recently published the latest updates of the ShortList portfolio, so I thought I’d connect the dots among the nine lists that I publish with this post on D2D trends.

Ontario firm brings high-tech vending to the world

Who knew that a chance encounter with a government self-service machine would put Shamira Jaffer on a path to success? But that’s precisely that happened when Ms. Jaffer, who today is the chief executive officer of Signifi Solutions Inc., which makes automated retail kiosks in Mississauga, Ont., used a touchscreen device to renew her driver licence more than a decade ago.

Why mobile security is more critical today, but still just as challenging

Today our lives are inextricably tied to our mobile devices. We use them just like mini-computers, handling sensitive personal and work-related matters throughout the day. This trend is concerning because mobile devices were not designed with security in mind and are now arguably the biggest threat to both consumer and enterprise security. Just like we have seen with the evolution of computer threats, cybercriminals are catching onto the new opportunities mobile presents.

‘Hello World’: Blockstream Satellite to broadcast Bitcoin to the entire planet

Blockchain technology company Blockstream has unveiled a satellite system that will bring Bitcoin connectivity to almost everyone on the planet. Billions of people all over the world struggle to connect to the internet; in many cases the cost of bandwidth relative to their income makes it prohibitive to do so. In addition to poor infrastructure and poverty, there are also places with lots of political instability, censorship and state control.

Blockchain technology may give Russia its next Sputnik moment

A few months ago, Russia created what could turn out to be its second “Sputnik,” although most of the world took little notice. A Russian scientific institution successfully tested a blockchain technology platform that can theoretically withstand a hack from a quantum computer. Quantum computing machines use subatomic particles to process data a million times quicker than regular computers, but they do not exist today outside experimental laboratories.
