Things change fast, and technology needs to catch up. For organizations, having real-time data is key to streamlining their work and services they deliver to their customers. And how to achieve it? The answer to this is event streaming – collecting, analyzing and managing streams of information the moment it is produced. Organizations are already adopting this technology, which enables them to run scenarios relying on immediate action on data. These include payment processing, fraud detection, anomaly detection, predictive maintenance, and IoT analytics.

In the article published in the E-3 Magazine, we are looking into a particularly interesting (and much needed) use case. In this business scenario, the customer wanted to receive mobile push-notifications whenever the status of the shipment changed. Read the full article to learn how we streamed shipment events from SAP to the native Azure cloud services using Datavard Glue:
