Provide a managed NiFi service for creating and running data pipelines

Nifi is a popular open source tool for building data pipelines.  It would be great if nifi was available as a managed service as part of the WDP. 

The service should ideally have source and target connectors for the following IBM Cloud services (and probably more):

  • Cloud object storage
  • Message Hub
  • IBM Analytics Engine
    • Hive
    • HBase (Phoenix)
  • DB2 Warehouse on Cloud
  • Cloudant
  • Compose Postgresql
  • Compose Mysql
  • Compose ScyllaDB
  • Compose Elasticsearch
  • Watson Knowledge Catalog
  • Watson Discovery

There should also be the ability to upload custom connectors.

See here for an old (but good) 5 minute summary video.

    that's something we always need.

    Don't forget Watson Discovery connector. At the end is a repository of enriched documents.
