Powering Predictive Mapping at Scale with Spark, Kafka, and Elastic Search

Gleaning real-time insights from streaming data often requires a complex data pipeline composed of message queues, stream processing frameworks, and storage solutions. This is incredibly complicated and can take weeks to deploy. DC/OS makes deploying these pipelines insanely easy. In only 15 minutes, we will set up a complete IOT pipeline, using Apache Spark Streaming, Apache Kafka, and ElasticSearch to power a javascript based front-end application analyzing streamed, real time data (using taxi locations across New York City).
