On-Demand Webinar and FAQ: Apache Spark – The Unified Engine for All Workloads

Last week, we held a live webinar — Apache Spark – The Unified Engine for All Workloads — to explain the real-world benefits to practitioners and enterprises when they build a technology stack based on a unified approach with Apache Spark.

This webinar features Ovum analyst Tony Baer, who will explain the real-world benefits to practitioners and enterprises when they build a technology stack based on a unified approach with Apache Spark.

This webinar will cover:

  • Findings around the growth of Spark and diverse applications using machine learning and streaming.
  • The advantages of using Spark to unify all workloads, rather than stitching together many specialized engines like Presto, Storm, MapReduce, Pig, and others.
  • Use case examples that illustrate the flexibility of Spark in supporting various workloads.

The webinar is now accessible on-demand, and the slides used in the webinar are also downloadable as attachments to the webinar.
