Apache Druid 24.0 New Feature! – Nested JSON

Apache Druid 24.0 has some amazing new capabilities. One of the most exciting ones is the ability to load complex nested JSON structures automatically. In this session we review the motivation for this feature; the complexity of dealing with nested and dynamic JSON data. We’ll show how it is now extremely simple to ingest and query this type of data. We’ll talk about Druid’s ability to deal with changing schemas in the nested JSON and how every JSON field is indexed to provide speed at query time. We’ll also take a look at early benchmarks with some pretty impressive results. If you’ve dealt with flattening data in the past, you won’t want to miss this session!
