Key Takeaways

  • “State is good”; real-time data supports responsive applications and the coordination of end-to-end processes
  • Lack of support for Stateful Cloud-native applications is a roadblock for many enterprise use-cases
  • Graph knowledge bases are an old idea now being revisited to model complex, distributed domains
  • Combining high-level abstraction with Cloud-native design principles offers efficient “Context-as-a-Service” for hydrating stateless services
  • Graph knowledge-based systems can enable composition of Cloud-native services into event-driven dataflow processes
