End-users have come to expect short load times, personalization and updates in real-time from the applications they use across a range of devices. Real-time data pipelines provide the speed necessary to deliver on these expectations, all within seconds or milliseconds. They are the key to capturing, processing, analyzing and serving massive amounts of data to millions and sometimes billions of users.

Beyond the implementation of a real-time data pipeline, there are other ways that enterprise leaders can propel their businesses forward in this era of big data. Recently, Gartner published a report entitled "Five Data Persistence Dilemmas that Will Keep CIOs Up at Night" (June 2015). Analysts Adam Ronthal and Nick Heudecker offer several recommendations for enterprises seeking to power real-time applications via cloud platforms.

Recommendations:

  • Adopt cloud-based deployments for DBMSs now, where use cases are suitable, to gain experience and position your organization to take advantage of the increasing maturity of cloud environments.
  • Use the cloud as a key element of a bimodal IT strategy that allows IT organizations to provide greater agility in support of business initiatives.
  • Evaluate current governance policies and revise them to accommodate cloud initiatives.
  • Consider vendors with established presence in both on-premises and cloud-based implementations, for maximum flexibility.
