Connecting the data infrastructure with the DataFlow (Apache NiFi)

Connecting the data infrastructure with the DataFlow (Apache NiFi)

The need to integrate a swarm of systems has always been present in the history of IT, however with the advent of big data and the internet of things this has simply exploded. Through the explanation of several real life use cases in companies of all sizes, this talk will introduce you to Apache NiFi, a powerful and scalable system to process, transform and distribute data.

NiFi is an open source project from the Apache Foundation that works perfectly as mediation logic between systems and to perform most of your ETL requirements. This talk will show you how NiFi can be used by humans in BI, Data Science, Development and Operations teams to easily fulfill your data move requirements.

After this talk you will know where you can leverage NiFi, but also where you should not use it, in a nutshell you will add another tool in your belt to work on data integration problems.

  1. Topics for Today • Integration patterns for the enterprise startup.

    • What is Apache NIFI. • Examples • NiFi on operation (best practises).
  2. @purbon Enterprise integration is the task of making separate applications

    work together to produce an unified set of functionality. The applications probably run on multiple computers, which may be geographically dispersed.
  3. @purbon Some application might need to be integrated even though

    they were not designed for integration and can not be changed. This issues, and others, are what makes application integration difficult.
  4. @purbon Each integration faces different needs and criteria, we can

    group them as Application coupling Integration simplicity Data formats and timeliness Data or functionality Communication
  5. @purbon An easy to use, powerful, and reliable system to

    process and distribute data. Web-based interface Highly configurable Data Provenance Designed for extension Secure
  6. @purbon NiFi was build to automate the flow of data

    between systems. an automated and managed flow of information between systems. But what is Dataflow?
