Presentation Platform: Select a Value
Audiences this presentation will apply to: Application Developers, Data Architects, Database Administrators, Systems Programmers, New Users, IT Managers
Technical areas this presentation will apply to: Database Performance (DB2 for z/OS)
If Tools and Utilities was selected which products: SPSS and IBM Analytics Accelerator. Primarily Apache Spark on z/OS
Objective 1: Introduce Apache Spark SQL
Objective 2: Introduce Data Analytics on z systems with DB2 for z/OS data along with IDAA, SPSS and Spark on z/OS
Objective 3: Introduce Apache Spark SQL usage scenarios - The Good, Bad, and the Ugly.

Abstract:  This session demonstrates the conceptual use of Apache Spark SQL and Analytics on z/OS to DB2 for z/OS developers and Database Administrators. It shows how IDAA, SPSS, Apache Spark SQL and ML Libraries can all be leveraged to conduct more data science experiments in less time and build predictive models with operational real-time and historical DB2 for z/OS data - optionally joined with other non-relational data.
