Kevin Foster talked about Stream Computing in general and at IBM at the monthly meeting of the SVForum Business Intelligence Special Interest Group on December 4th, 2012. The slides are available at the BI SIG’s home page on SVForum’s website.
Stream computing is part of a paradigm shift from on-line transaction processing and analytical processing (OLTP and OLAP) to RTAP: Real Time Analytical Processing. IBM’s RTAP offering is called Infosphere Streams. It provides a programming environment that enables users to set up dataflow graphs. It takes advantage of eclipse and is part of IBM’s larger Big Data platform which also includes text analytics.
