Apache Spark Implementation on IBM z/OS
Analytics

Redbooks, published 13 Aug 2016

The term big data refers to extremely large sets of data that are analyzed to reveal insights, such as patterns, trends, and associations. The algorithms that analyze this data to provide these insights must extract value from a wide range of data sources, including business data and live, streaming, social media data. However, the real value of these insights comes from their timeliness. Rapid delivery of insights enables anyone (not only data scientists) to make effective decisions, applying deep intelligence to every enterprise application. Apache Spark is an integrated ...
