Course Objectives

This three-day training course for Apache Spark enables participants to build complete, unified big data applications combining batch, streaming, and interactive analytics on all their data. With Spark, developers can write sophisticated parallel applications to execute faster decisions, better decisions, and real-time actions, applied to a wide variety of use cases, architectures, and industries.


Apache Spark is the next-generation successor to MapReduce. Spark is a powerful, opensource processing engine for data in the Hadoop cluster, optimized for speed, ease of use, and sophisticated analytics. The Spark framework supports streaming data processing and complex, iterative algorithms, enabling applications to run up to 100x faster than traditional Hadoop MapReduce programs.
