Apache NiFi (Cloudera DataFlows - ex Hortonworks DataFlow) is an innovative technology to build data flows and solve your streaming challenges?
In today's big data world, fast data is becoming increasingly important. Streaming data at scale and rapidly between all your systems should be centralised, automated and resilient to failure to ensure good delivery to your downstream systems.
With NiFi, you can build all your flows directly from a UI, no coding required, and at scale!
Apache NiFi initially used by the NSA so they could move data at scale and was then open sourced. Being such a hot technology, Onyara (the company behind it) was then acquired by Hortonworks, one of the main backers of the big data project Hadoop and then Hadoop Data Platform.
Apache NiFi is now used in many top organisations that want to harness the power of their fast data by sourcing and transferring information from and to their database and big data lakes. It is a key tool to learn for the analyst and data scientists alike. Its simplicity and drag and drop interface make it a breeze to use!
You can build streaming pipelines between Kafka and ElasticSearch, an FTP and MongoDB, and so much more! Your imagination is the limit

FAQ: In which order should you learn?...
AWS Cloud: Start with AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate, then move on to AWS Certified Developer Associate and then AWS Certified SysOps Administrator. Afterwards you can either do AWS Certified Solutions Architect Professional or AWS Certified DevOps Professional, or a specialty certification of your choosing.
Apache Kafka: Start with Apache Kafka for Beginners, then you can learn Connect, Streams and Schema Registry if you're a developer, and Setup and Monitoring courses if you're an admin. Both tracks are needed to pass the Confluent Kafka certification.
