The New Gold Rush: Now Is The Time To Mine Your Real-Time Data Streams

Blog: The Tibco Blog

During the California Gold Rush of 1848 and years beyond, fearless miners waded deep into the Sierra Mountains’ streams to uncover over 750,000 pounds of gold, valued at $24 billion in current dollars

Today, your business is awash in streams of real-time data from digital transactions, sensor readings, GPS signals, device logs, and more. Is there gold in these streams as well?

And by 2025, when analysts estimate 150 billion connected devices,1 will you be a winning business that strikes gold from your real-time data streams? Or will you and your data gold left behind?

A Miner’s Journey Is Long And Ever Changing

As a native Californian and a student of its history, I have always been fascinated by the great lengths that people went through to mine this golden bonanza. Miners immigrated by land and sea from around the world, often taking six months or more to complete their journey. Then the real work began. Yet miner by miner, stream by stream, and year by year they succeeded. 

Aiding in their success was a revolution in mining processes that started with simple metal pans and evolved into what was then the most state-of-the-art mining equipment. Without this advancement, the miners would never have mined their streams so successfully. 

Evolving Technology Accelerates The Journey

But unlike the mechanical processes associated with gold mining, mining your data streams requires technology-based processes. And when it comes to adopting and driving value from your streaming data, organizations like yours are also on an evolving technology journey.
