Building Data Ingestion Platform

Building a Data Ingestion Platform using Apache Nifi could be tedious. Let's explore this use case that reveals the challenges and techniques to build such a platform.
  • Apache Nifi is an open source for distributing and processing of data supporting data routing and transformation.
  • It is an integration, automation tool to perform data ingestion at a faster pace.
  • Data Ingestion is a process of moving data from source to destination to analyze further.

Business Challenge for Building Data Pipeline

  • Build a Data Pipeline on a single platform for each case.
  • Build a platform to handle high load.
  • Different Processes run at Different Time
  • Data Loss and Duplication.
  • Distributed Systems lead to Broken Connections
