When your business decides to develop a software application or a software product, its IT team or IT consulting partner must choose an appropriate development environment to support the needs of the project and plan for scalability, performance and upgrades. Many developers like the Apache Spark tools and libraries and supporting environment and there is good reason to choose Spark for your project.
Apache Spark Developers and the Spark Framework Can Satisfy Your App Dev Needs!
When you are contemplating a new software product development project or a software application development initiative, your team may benefit from expert IT consulting. There are many considerations and decisions to be made to successfully execute this type of project and one of them involves the type of technology, architecture, development frameworks and tools you will use to best meet your requirements.
No one development environment is right for every software development project. The Apache Development environment provides numerous benefits for many types of projects. In our previous article, entitled, ‘Four Important Advantages of Apache Spark’, we discuss some important advantages of the Apache Spark development option.
Spark is a distributed open-source cluster-computing framework and includes an interface for programming a full suite of clusters with comprehensive fault tolerance and support for data parallelism. Spark can be used effectively to provide support for Java, Scala, Python and R programming and is suitable for SQL, streaming data, processing graphs and for machine learning.
If you are a developer, contemplating a software development project that must support Big Data, a large user base and/or multiple locations, Apache Spark should definitely be on your short list of considerations for a computing framework. In this article, we look at three reasons you should use Apache Spark in your Big Data projects.
Big Data and Predictive Analytics: Control Your Business and Achieve Results!
Even if you do not work in IT, you have probably heard the term ‘Big Data’. These days, Big Data can cause big problems. If you do not have a plan to manage all that data and to make it easily accessible to your users, the data may as well not exist. If you cannot use that data for predictive analytics, you cannot accurately forecast your business results, plan for growth or compete in the market.
Data Management and Access with DWH and ETL. As Easy as Thimble Organization!
I HATE disorganization. There is nothing more frustrating than knowing you have a particular item and searching everywhere to find it, only to come up empty. I have a friend, Jenny, who collects thimbles and she has everything catalogued! From the date of purchase to the locale where the thimble was made, the age of the piece and in which display cabinet that thimble resides. SO…if she wants to know how many thimbles she has from the U.K., she can get a count. If she wants to know which thimble is the oldest, she can find that information too! Jenny created her own little database to capture and manage this information.
Apache Spark Optimizes Data and Performance!
What is Apache Spark? The Apache Spark framework includes Spark Core to manage memory and interact with storage systems, Spark Streaming to process live data streams, Spark SQL supporting SQL with HiveQL, MLlib supporting machine-learning algorithms, regression, clustering and filtering, and GraphX supporting graph manipulation and computations. This framework makes it easier to stream data and to quickly process analytics and algorithms, so your applications will run faster and your enterprise can manage Big Data and high volume data.
Can Spark Consulting Help Me Simplify the Complexities of Apache Spark?
Apache Spark enables programmers with an application-programming interface that focuses on data structure. Apache Spark programming allows Spark consultants to expand the capabilities of development and programming, map functions across data, and simplify data results. The tool supports Hadoop YARN, Apache Mesos, Hadoop Distributed File System, Cassandra, OpenStack Swift, Amazon 53, Kudu, and MapR File System. It offers the Apache Spark developer a powerful tool to work in an integrated environment and simplify the programming environs.
