Joe Caserta has become our in-house expert on Big Data Lakes and has been using Apache Spark in many of his implementations. he has kindly agreed to provide an introduction and demonstration of this amazing tool/platform.

Apache Spark is the one of the hottest tools in the new data management landscape for very good reasons. Spark is an incredible data integration tool: it allows you to integrate data from a variety of data sources including databases, files, spreadsheets, Hadoop, NoSQL databases, and even streaming data, to combine the data as if all coming from the same source.  It is also frequently listed as an in-memory tool, since it allows you to speed up MapReduce processes by tens or hundreds of times by storing interim results in memory instead of writing to disk.  Additionally, it is the new standard in defining Big Data production “pipelines” (operational flows) and handling data “streams” (continuous input). As part of the Apache project, Spark is available for free.
