Apache Spark brings the productivity of functional programming and speed of in-memory data processing to Apache Hadoop. It has much to offer for IT developers and data scientists alike, including support for popular languages like Java, Python and R, as well as its own distributed machine-learning library.

As powerful as Spark can be, it remains a complex creature. To get the most out of Spark, it needs to be an integrated part of a broader, Hadoop-based data management platform, such as provided by Cloudera and Talend. By using open tools to connect, ingest, govern, secure and manage data, successful data science and real-time analytics projects become a reality.

Please join Talend and Cloudera to learn:

  • Apache Spark, its architecture and benefits
  • Spark's architecture, deployment strategies and use cases
  • Spark's impact to data science, analytics and machine learning
  • How to move data scientists' work to IT production
  • Best practices for large Spark deployments
  • Mastering Spark's complexity
