Google Cloud has been named a leader in The Forrester Wave: Streaming Analytics, Q3 2019. According to Forrester, many leading enterprises realise that real-time analytics, the analytics of what’s happening with data in the present is an incredible competitive advantage. With it, they can act right away to serve customers, fix operational problems, power internet of things (IoT) apps and respond decisively to competitors.
The report evaluates the top 11 vendors against 26 rigorous criteria for streaming analytics to help enterprise IT teams understand their options and make informed choices for their organisations.

Google’s Cloud Dataflow is that solution for Google Cloud Platform.
