The wholesale disruption of COVID-19 is taking a toll on the real estate market. A new survey suggests that offices will remain under capacity for months, retail and hospitality will continue to struggle, and, despite some increases in single-family home values, real estate across the board will see its value fall around 10% next year.

These are some of the main findings of “Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2021,” a new report from the Urban Land Institute and PwC. Based on a survey of more than 1,600 leading real estate industry experts and interviews with more than 1,300, this 42nd annual edition of the report finds that the pandemic is going to continue to drive major changes in the way property is bought, sold, and used. Overall, the impact of the pandemic is broadly, but not universally, negative, the report notes.

Key Takeaways

  • One of the challenges that we have always faced in building applications, and systems as a whole, is how to exchange information between them efficiently whilst retaining the flexibility to modify the interfaces without undue impact elsewhere. 
  • Events offer a Goldilocks-style approach in which real-time APIs can be used as the foundation for applications which is flexible yet performant; loosely-coupled yet efficient. If you think about the business domain in which you work, you can probably think of many examples of events. They can be human-generated interactions, and they can be machine-generated. 
  • Apache Kafka offers a scalable event streaming platform with which you can build applications around the powerful concept of events. Kafka includes stream processing capabilities through the Kafka Streams API. 
  • ksqlDB is an event streaming database purpose-built for stream processing applications. It provides a SQL-based API for querying and processing data in Kafka.

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The ability of organizations to realize business value from data increasingly depends on their capacity to collect, process, store and analyze it at the Edge, new research from Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, suggests.

As networks become increasingly congested with huge volumes of data generated from user and IoT devices, IT leaders are recognizing that analyzing real-time data nearer to the Edge yields greater efficiencies and insights, which results in improved business outcomes.

US President Donald Trump said in a video from his hospital room on Saturday that he felt “much better” and hoped to be “back soon,” after a day of contradictory messages from the White House about his condition following his COVID-19 diagnosis.

In a four-minute video posted on Twitter, Trump, looking tired and wearing a jacket and open-necked shirt, said he “wasn’t feeling so well” when he first arrived at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday, and that the next few days would be crucial in his fight against the coronavirus.

 

“Over the next period of a few days, I guess that’s the real test, so we’ll be seeing what happens over those next couple of days,” Trump said, seated at a round table in front of an American flag.
