Streams on Cloud Pak for Data

Version 5.3.1


You can develop and run applications that process in-flight data with the IBM Streams service. Streams enables continuous and fast analysis of massive volumes of moving data to help improve the speed of business insight and decision making.

The Streams service enables developers to work with in-flight data in analytics projects. Whether you prefer to work visually with streams flows or to write code in a Jupyter notebook or your preferred source-code editor, you can use the Streams service to:

  • Build and deploy streaming applications.
  • Connect to multiple streaming data sources, such as IBM Event Streams, HTTP, and IoT.
  • Deliver data and insights to data stores within the Cloud Pak for Data platform and to remote data stores, such as IBM Db2® Warehouse and IBM Event Streams.
  • Elastically scale Streams applications to accommodate variable workloads.
