What was once a pipe dream is now a reality: advances in technology over the past decade have allowed businesses to harness the power of real-time data. However, while over 80% of businesses say transforming to a real-time enterprise is critical to meeting customer expectations, only 12% have optimized their processes for real-time customer experiences, according to 451 Research data.

Real-time data is not just a nice-to-have, but a must-have for businesses to stay afloat in the “right now” economy. There are still some clear use cases for batch; for example, payroll or billing typically involve processing a large number of transactions on a regular basis. Batch processing allows companies to efficiently process payroll transactions in a single batch rather than processing them individually in real time. However, more companies are switching to real-time in cases where getting and analyzing continuous data really matters.
