Angoss Webinar Ml Spark 2017 May

It is inevitable that organizations will continue to accrue vast amounts of data, not only from traditional sources that are product level focused but also from digital outlets such as mobile devices, social media networks or the Internet of Things. Accumulation of data collected from these sources is also known as Big Data. Regardless of where the data comes from organizations have instinctively determined that Big Data is a precious asset, one that can positively shape the direction of the business.

As organizations make the shift towards Big Data they direct their focus towards:
  • Adopting Big Data technologies like Hadoop & Spark
  • Implementing open standards and libraries
  • Using new data sources for decision making
  • Creating heterogeneous analytics teams that are comprised of various skills and tools
  • Integrating with Enterprise applications and BI tools
  • IT centralization
  • Increasing focus on Security and Governance
As a result, adoption of Big Data enabled data science platforms is on the rise across the enterprise in all verticals and industries. In the 2017 Forrester PAML Wave, "Forrester forecasts a 15% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the PAML market through 2021." The rising need for data science applications reinforces the seemingly undeniable fact that a single, fully integrated platform is key to enabling data access, processing and data insight extraction.
