Velocity is one of the 4 Vs commonly used to characterize Big Data. In this regard, Forrester remarked the following in Q3 2014: "The high velocity, white-water flow of data from innumerable real-time data sources such as market data, Internet of Things, mobile, sensors, click-stream, and even transactions remain largely unnavigated by most firms.

Streaming analytics is extensively used in a wide variety of domains such as healthcare, e-commerce, financial services, telecommunications, energy and utilities, manufacturing, government and transportation. In this tutorial, we shall present an in-depth overview of streaming analytics - applications, algorithms and platforms - landscape. We shall walk through how the field has evolved over the last decade and then discuss the current challenges - the impact of the other three Vs, viz., Volume, Variety and Veracity, on Big Data streaming analytics. The tutorial is intended for both researchers and practitioners in the industry. We shall also present state-of-the-affairs of streaming analytics at Twitter.
