Putting Real-Time Data Streams to Work

This CBR issue is motivated by the following trend: the ability to access and analyze data as it's created in real (or near real) time. This issue's articles work particularly well together.

Regardless of where you are along the real-time data analytics path, I trust both the survey data and articles in this issue will serve you well.
