This session takes a deep dive into the architecture and implementation details of the advanced analytics platform. The designed framework enables self-service data intake, data processing and report/model generation by the business users using distributed hybrid-cloud data ingestor. The solution is architected in such a way that storage and compute have been decoupled and encourages the concept of BYOC (bring your own compute).


The platform uses cloud instances to run Hadoop distribution and leverages Amazon S3 as a data warehouse storage layer (data lake), Spark as an ETL engine and Spark SQL as a distributed query engine. Data visualization is performed via Spark SQL using Tableau. The platform supports both batch and streaming use cases and enables the end-users to make data-driven decisions with minimal IT engagement.


The session also highlights the lessons learned and the challenges that were overcome on both the business and technology front.



Cloud Technologies, Apache Hadoop Distribution (YARN, Navigator, Sentry), Spark, Kafka, Spark SQL, and Spark Streaming.
