Throughout the conference, the theme of Batch vs. Streaming was apparent. Discussions covered how they can be unified, how batch processing’s performance can / must be improved for real-time applications, and more. There was even a dedicated panel discussion with Adi Polak, Amy Chen, Eric Sammer and Tyler Akidau discussing the state of streaming adoption today, and debating if streaming will ever fully replace batch. You can view some interesting points from the panel discussion in the Twitter thread from Robin Moffatt.
