Learn how analyzing stats from professional sports leagues is an instructive use case for data analytics using Apache Spark with SQL. Covered in this installment: data exploration with Apache Impala (incubating) and Hue.
In Part 1 of this series, I introduced the topic of using fantasy sports analytics as an instructive use case for exploring the Apache Hadoop ecosystem. In that installment, we focused on data processing by taking a collection of data from Basketball-Reference.com and enriching it with z-scores and normalized z-scores to analyze the relative value of NBA players.
As part of the drumbeat for Spark Summit West in San Francisco (June 6-8), learn how analyzing stats from professional sports leagues is an instructive use case for data analytics using Apache Spark with SQL.
In the United States, many diehard sports fans morph into amateur statisticians to get an edge over the competition in their fantasy sports leagues. Depending on one’s technical chops, this “edge” is usually no more sophisticated than simple spreadsheet analysis,
Thanks to Richard Williamson of Silicon Valley Data Science for allowing us to republish the following post about his sample application based on Apache Spark, Apache Kudu (incubating), and Apache Impala (incubating).
Why should your infrastructure maintain a linear growth pattern when your business scales up and down during the day based on natural human cycles? There is an obvious need to maintain a steady baseline infrastructure to keep the lights on for your business,
In this guest post, members of the Barclays Advanced Data Analytics Team describe the results of an offsite hackathon to develop a recommendation system using Apache Spark.
In the depths of the cold, wet British winter, the Advanced Data Analytics team from Barclays escaped to a villa on Lanzarote, Canary Islands, for a week to collaboratively solve a key business problem: how to design a better customer experience. We framed the problem in the context of using customer shopping behavior data to build a personalized recommender system.
