Real-time Challenge

The value of big data such as social media decays rapidly with time. Companies that are able to draw insights from their data and act fast and correctly in response, can realize valuable strategic advantages over their competitors. “Learning that a web campaign from last week created negative sentiment in viewers is useful, but being able to alter corporate communication in real-time is what makes the difference. And this is exactly what the partnership between DataSift and HStreaming allows. Companies can realize the full value of social media by overlaying the data with other data sources, such as sales data, marketing data or web logs, to look in real-time for insights in the form of patterns or outliers. Once a pattern is identified, companies can programmatically react, such as issuing email notifications, alerts, and requests to web-based services,” explains Jana Uhlig, CEO of HStreaming.

“The partnership brings totally new level of insights and revenue opportunities to social media and we are very excited to bring such capabilities to our customers. Being at the forefront of the social media development is our main goal and we are happy to add HStreaming into our partnership community,” says Nick Halstead, founder and CEO of DataSift.

HStreaming services run in the cloud and can handle even the most challenging data volumes and complex event processing (CEP) problems by leveraging the scalability of Apache Hadoop and MapReduce.
