Section: Crisp talk for data engineering track Technical level: Advanced


This talk will explain the approaches one must take to build a converged platform for data analytics. We at IQLECT have built a real-time analytics platform and will like to share the experience. Also this helps answer an important question, Build or Buy.


What are the factors for building a software converged platform? What are key things to consider? What kind of challenges will be faced? What kind of approach should one take to choose the stack?
