Impetus Technologies to Host Webinar on Apache Spark Streaming

May 16, 2016

Complimentary Webinar Will Demonstrate How Large Enterprises Can Easily Build and Deploy Real-Time Applications Using Spark Streaming


LOS GATOS, Calif., May 16, 2016 -- Impetus Technologies, a big data software products and services company, today announced it will host a complimentary webinar titled "Spark Streaming Made Easy!" on Friday, May 20 from 9:30-10:15 a.m. PT.

The combination of real-time streaming analytics and the Internet of Things is gaining momentum in the data and analytics industry. As enterprises widely adopt Apache Spark and Apache Spark Streaming, IT teams are challenged to provide data scientists, developers, business analysts and operations teams with the tools to make Apache Spark Streaming an easy-to-use, robust, scalable and multi-tenant service.

The webinar will illustrate how this problem is being solved at many Fortune 1000 companies. Specifically, Anand Venugopal, head of product for StreamAnalytix and Punit Shah, a StreamAnalytix solution architect, will cover:

  • An overview of the stream processing landscape;
  • The need for a streaming platform integrated with the Hadoop data lake;
  • A visual, integrated development environment approach for building applications on Spark Streaming;
  • The use of various Spark Streaming operators in sample applications (e.g., Spark SQL, Window, MLlib, Join, custom Scala code, etc.); and
  • Real-time dashboards, application deployment and monitoring.

"Adoption of Apache Spark Streaming is on the rise, but many enterprises feel the need for visual tools for rapid application development so they can launch and manage production grade use cases quickly with their current talent pool and not have to wait for deep Spark coding ability to be developed or hired," said Venugopal. "The purpose of this webinar is to enable the Spark user community to accelerate their streaming analytics projects."
