Our BI data dashboard tools and big data analytics software now connects to Apache Spark as another data source. This is one of the most popular big data technologies for making semi-structured data in Hadoop and non-Hadoop environments accessible to information presentation applications such as ours.
The joint solution makes for a relatively more cost-effective and quick-to-deploy option for turning Big Data into actionable analysis. Even dashboards are practical as the speed of responsiveness is improved with the Spark platform. Spark adds no additional cost since it is open source.
