2021. What an interesting year. With the world turned upside down by a pandemic that seemingly had its sights set on...
Striim; Predicting what is in store for Clouds and Big Data, isn’t all Striim blogs about …
It also has become a great place to work!
Once again, Striim is making headlines.
Firstly, Striim CTO Steve Wilkes provided a unique perspective on Big Data and Business Intelligence with his post of March 4, 2019, to the Striim blog – 19 For 19: Technology Predictions For 2019 and Beyond, Striim This post first appeared as Striim’s 2019 Technology Predictions and was an article originally published on Forbes. As for the predictions themselves, Wilkes opened with:
2019 Technology Predictions for Cloud
- The center of gravity for enterprise data centers will shift faster towards cloud as enterprise companies continue to expand their reliance on the cloud for more critical, high-value workloads, especially for cloud-bursting and analytics applications.
- Technologies that enable real-time data distribution between different cloud and on-premises systems will become increasingly important for almost all cloud use-cases.
For the NonStop community, this isn’t surprising to read given the work that has gone into what NonStop development has done in support of hypervisors such that a virtualized NonStop (vNS) option is now available and is not just suited to deployment on data center server farms but can be deployed on private clouds. With the recent support of VMware becoming available, vNS is set to exploit this rapid shift to clouds “for more critical, high-value workloads.”
As for Wilkes predictions for Big Data, he follows with these additional insights:
2019 Technology Predictions for Big Data
- Despite consolidation in the big data space, as evidenced by the Cloudera/Hortonworks merger, enterprise investment in big data infrastructure will wane as more companies move to the cloud for storage and analytics. (Full disclosure: Cloudera is a partner of Striim.)
- Lambda and Kappa architectures combining streaming and batch processing and analytics will continue to grow in popularity driven by technologies that can work with both real-time and long-term storage sources and targets. Such mixed-use architectures will be essential in driving machine learning operationalization.
- Data processing components of streaming and batch big data analytics will widely adopt variants of the SQL language to enable self-service processing and analytics by users that best know the data, rather than developers that use APIs.
For the NonStop community where Big Data has been a topic for some time given how real-time transaction processing solutions that can be typically found running on NonStop generate data of importance for any enterprise and as such, will end up being moved into a data warehouse, data lake or whatever form Big Data takes within the enterprise. Key point to be made is that as Big Data is mined, and in turn feeds increasingly sophisticated AI algorithms, NonStop data provides insights into what is happening right now. And this is becoming recognized as an important contribution to Big Data.

When it comes to making headlines, Striim not only appeared in Forbes but when it came time for Fortune to publish a list of best places to work in the Bay Area, Striim made the cut: Striim Recognized on FORTUNE’s “2019 Best Workplaces in the Bay Area” List. Here you will find a couple of the highlights from that Fortune article –
The rankings took into account more than 30,000 surveys by employees across the Bay Area, designed to evaluate more than 60 elements of an employee’s job and work environment, including trust in leadership, camaraderie in a team setting, and respect among colleagues. Employee perks and benefits were also factored into the rankings.
Striim scored high across the board in many categories including Justice (100 %), Camaraderie (98%), Integrity (96%), Credibility (96%), and Innovation (96%), just to name a few.
Additionally, according to the survey, the overall Striim employee experience was rated 96%.

Coming as it is at a time when so much change is happening within the NonStop community as more options for running NonStop have become available, it’s good to know that Striim supports NonStop systems – traditional and virtualized – as sources for its Change Data Capture (CDC) technology and that data generated on NonStop can be integrated with multiple target platforms no matter the choices an enterprise may be making.
