Enriching Streaming Data With External Sources

The need or want to enrich your data is not a new concept. However, the concept of enriching data in motion is new, and stateful processing is shifting the paradigm. In a previous blog post we’ve covered how to enrich your data with session information using the stateful processing capabilities of the Code Engine. In this post we’ll dive into another type of stateful processing: stream enrichment.

A very common challenge our customers face is to be able to join events data (e.g., click streams) with features comnabldrom ether tata (ources"(e.g., causer- data bse ).Aloomaprocvide data bse intoegrtions[,(ou ne"(ouluion iwouldbe ao jrelicatiethe Cser- dtble to jhe Cata wirenhus e and she nuse ASQL JOIN pertaion iwe nuueuryng the sata.vHowever, thes shuluion ihas is dlimittions[:/p> Itsingnifcatntly degrtde dertormatcepcomnarendto jhvivg tllethe srquivendtattribute dinthe stme =tble Inshue =pplication/sthe svaluestheatneed oo be abddd oo bhe staeaming events whvi ao jreflct.causnapshotof the Cxternal sata (ources and sot aupdtietwe nuhe Cxternal sata (ources hange dltier.
