A systematic review and meta-analysis of event streaming and real-time data applications using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) statement were performed from an original inquiry of 540 articles from 12 digital libraries. An independent review of selected studies assessed the risk of bias and obtained data from research and academic studies. The talk will cover the systematic review workflow and obtained results from the academic literature. It will demonstrate best practices of event streaming and real-time applications in academia and research communities using Google Scholar for scholarly literature search. The findings will be made available publicly on Github and arXiv.org
