Apache Spark

Well suited:1. Data can be integrated from several sources including click stream, logs, transactional systems2. Real-time ingestion through Kafka, Kinesis, and other streaming platforms

SAP Vora

I spent more than 1 year with SAP Vora, SAP Datahub and SAP Leonardo with ML, iOt. I believe this product has potential but it is not easy to adopt. SAP has to keep in mind how open-source big data technologies are able to deliver quick results. I know SAP is stabilizing and fighting hard against many open source technologies, but it still has a long way to go there.

Pros

  • We used to make our batch processing faster. Spark is faster in batch processing than MapReduce with it in memory computing
  • Spark will run along with other tools in the Hadoop ecosystem including Hive and Pig
  • Spark supports both batch and real-time processing
  • Apache Spark has Machine Learning Algorithms support

  • Modelling with SAP HANA and Hadoop
  • Realtime Analysis using Vora and HANA as a Streaming engine
  • Time series Analysis on large chunks of datasets
  • Machine learning capabilities on Hadoop tables and spark contexts

Cons

  • Data visualization.
  • Waiting for Web Development for small apps to be started with Spark as backbone middleware and HDFS as data retrieval file system.
  • Transformations and actions available are limited so must modify API to work for more features.

  • Vora 2.0 in on premise scenarios could be improved, as adoption of the cloud is not an easy sell.
  • Kubernetes and Docker integration need to be more seamless and quick to understand. If this is simplified, it will be easy to adopt
  • Data hub orchestration and integrations could be simplified so that quick adoption within SAP BW, ECC, S4 HANa scenarios is possible.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Pig and Apache Hive provide most of the things spark provide but apache spark has more features like actions and transformations which are easy to code. Spark uses optimization technique as we can select driver program and manipulate DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph)Python can be used even for data transformations but it requires lot of coding compared to Spark and it is even so slow.

We selected SAP VORA because we needed acclerated integration with different sources with a huge amount of data. Also the data de-duplication has easily eliminated the different entries in a fastest and enhanced way, which ultimately leads us and the customer to prefer SAP Vora against different products, and has helped eliminate any limitations in using and playing with our data lake.

Return on Investment

  • By learning Spark, we can become certified and/or provide proper recommendations or implementations on Spark solutions.
  • With a background in Hadoop distributed processes, it has been easy to understand and diagnose how Spark handles the transfer of data within a cluster. Especially when using YARN as the resource manager and HDFS as the data source.
  • Staying up to date with the latest changes to Spark has become a repetitive task. While most Hadoop distributions only support Spark 1.6 at the moment, Spark 2.0 has introduced some useful features, but those require a re-write of existing applications.

  • Negative impact would be Poc and RFI will need more time to adopt and decision making gets delayed
  • Positive impact would be it's a great leap from SAP to adopt a Big data technologies and AI within cloud stream. But selling is going to take time.
