My Year in Review (2020)

Last year, I thought a few things would be coming in 2020.

What's Coming in 2020

  • Cloud Enterprise Data Platforms
  • Hybrid Cloud
  • Streaming with Flink, Kafka, NiFi
  • AI at the Edge with Microcontrollers and Small Devices
  • Voice Data In Queries
  • Event Handler as a Service (Automatic Kafka Message Reading)
  • More Powerful Parameter Based Modular Streaming
  • Cloud First For Big Data
  • Log Handling Moves to MiNiFi
  • Full AI At The Edge with Deployable Models
  • More Powerful Edge TPU/GPU/VPU
  • Kafka is everywhere
  • Open Source UI Driven Event Engines
  • FLaNK Stack gains popularity
  • FLINK Everywhere

Some of this was deferred due to the global pandemic and I had a big miss with Voice Data and some advances in streaming getting delayed.

Here's a list bit of new news for 2020, SRM was added to Kafka DataHub in the Public Cloud:
