Overall Satisfaction with Apache Spark

Apache Spark is being used by our organization for writing ETL applications. It enables us to ingest thousands of records of data to database tables.
  • Great computing engine for solving complex transformative logic
  • Useful for understanding data and doing data analytical work
  • Gives us a great set of libraries and api to solve day-to-day problems
  • High learning curve
  • Complexity
  • More documentation
  • More developer support
  • More educational videos
  • Saves lot of time
  • Very powerful
  • Automates lots of manual work
  • Higher depth of knowledge is required to understand and perform analysis
Spark is simply awesome to work on with any data sets and also has an in-memory database which makes it very flexible.
I have been using this for my ETL application, gives me all the necessary APIs to work with and solves my business objective.
Developer support for Apache Spark can be improved. We need more of a developer community around this considering it's an emerging technology.
