Field Report: DataWorks Summit 2018

In this field report I wanted to give you a sense for what the vendor ecosystem was saying at DataWorks Summit, their corporate message if you will. Each company had a somewhat different slant of course which aligned with their products and services, but there was also a lot of commonality. Most everyone had some tie into the industry’s current buzz – AI, machine learning and deep learning. This was perfect for me as a practicing data scientist myself. Let’s get started with some vendor snapshots …

Big Data Meets HPC – Exploiting HPC Technologies for Accelerating Big Data Processing

DK Panda from Ohio State University gave this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “This talk will provide an overview of challenges in accelerating Hadoop, Spark and Memcached on modern HPC clusters. An overview of RDMA-based designs for Hadoop (HDFS, MapReduce, RPC and HBase), Spark, Memcached, Swift, and Kafka using native RDMA support for InfiniBand and RoCE will be presented.”

Analytics Development Life Cycle: Pangea is Panacea

Sai Prakash from HCL America gave this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “In this short talk we shall present an analytics workbench perspective (Pangea) that brings entire ADLC under single umbrella thus enabling collaboration, shrinking overall cycle time, easing model deployment efforts and allowing model monitoring. Actionable insights and visualizations are facilitated though service integration interfaces.”
