Box 1: Batch
The batch processing model requires a set of data that is collected over time while the stream processing model requires
data to be fed into an analytics tool, often in micro-batches, and in real-time.
The batch Processing model handles a large batch of data while the Stream processing model handles individual records or
micro-batches of few records. In Batch Processing, it processes over all or most of the data but in Stream Processing, it
processes over data on a rolling window or most recent record.
