Real Time Analytics with Twitter Storm

Submitted Apr 26, 2012

Perform Real time analysis of the data that is coming into your System from multiple sources. I’ll talk about Different Use Cases from a Performance Monitoring Standpoint, and a little bit on Data Visualization.


Real Time Analytics is a different problem, when compared to batch systems like Hadoop. This talk will focus on how you can use Twitter Storm in performing Analytics in near realtime.

We’ll build a simple Real User Monitoring System during the course of the talk.

Towards the end of the session I’ll talk about how you can also visualize this data.


Understanding on different Use Cases when you might want to use a Real time system. In my eyes they are Perf. Monitoring, Operations, Key Business Metrics etc..
