When Micro-batching Isn't Good Enough

Ted Dunning View Bio

I will describe several use cases where batch and micro batch processing is not appropriate and describe why this is so. I will also describe what a true streaming solution needs to provide for solving these problems. These use cases will be taken from real industrial situations, but the descriptions will drive down to technical details as well.
