5:45 PM – 7:00 PM Taylor Goetz: Past, Present and Future of Apache Storm
This session is a (Intermediate) talk in our IoT and Streaming track. It focuses on Apache Arrow, Apache Storm and is geared towards CXO, Architect, Developer / Engineer, Operations / IT audiences.
At over 4 years old as an open source project, and an Apache project for more than 3 years, Apache Storm is one of the most mature, enterprise-ready and widely adopted real-time data platforms available. Apache Storm is used across a wide range of industries, from Fortune 500 companies, to three-letter government agencies, to big data startups. In this session we’ll explore how Storm has evolved over the years, and more importantly how it will continue to evolve and innovate in both the near and long term. We will discuss new features, performance improvements, project roadmaps, and it’s relationship with other open source streaming solutions. Additionally, we will look at the state of streaming SQL in Apache Storm, the upcoming Apache Beam integration, and a new effort at Apache that will allow users to create streaming analytics applications visually, without the need to delve into the world of a software developer.
