What Is StreamInsight? A Primer for Non-Programmers

Are you trying to figure out whether StreamInsight might be something you could use, but you’re having trouble sifting through all the programming jargon that’s used to describe it? StreamInsight is, ultimately, a set of programming tools, and at some point it takes a programmer to implement a StreamInsight solution. But it really should be possible to get a handle on what StreamInsight is all about even if you’re not a programmer yourself.

A new article published in the TechNet Wiki may be able to help: StreamInsight for Non-Programmers. It gives an overview of the technology, but it leaves out the C# references and relates StreamInsight to more familiar SQL databases and queries. Check it out.

When you’re done there and are ready to dig a little deeper, take a look at Get Started with StreamInsight 2.1. That article should help you navigate through the StreamInsight official documentation and other resources.

And, as always, you can post questions or comments here or on the TechNet Wiki.

Regards,

  • This is a VERY POOR description.  This really should be updated to give a high level of what this product is.  This statement is poor in taste to publish "StreamInsight is, ultimately, a set of programming tools, and at some point it takes a programmer to implement a StreamInsight solution."

  • Is StreamInsight still alive? It has been quite some time since anything "happened" here, and we are questioning if we should be considering it as a viable technology to implement in our business.

  • StreamInsight is a supported product for SQL Server family and is used as underlying technology for some of the upcoming Microsoft products and services.

  • Great

  • Very unfortunate. I have worked with team that developed this, and it was an awesome product. Our team was among their first clients, certainly the most heavy user. One of rare times when MSFT made it first to market. And the reason I found and commenting on this post is this: techcrunch.com/.../google-launches-bigquery-streaming-for-real-time-big-data-analytics
