In this talk, I will surface common pitfalls that prevent real-time data projects from realizing their full potential. In exploring solutions to these problems, I will introduce essential elements for constructing successful real-time analytics products. We’ll also discuss actionable steps that technical practitioners can take to bring about wider adoption of real-time data technology within their organizations and beyond.
