AnswerRocket empowers business people with search-driven analytics against any data source. Spark SQL is a Spark module for structured data processing and acts as a distributed SQL query engine enabling Hadoop queries to run up to 100x faster. It also provides powerful integration with the rest of the Spark ecosystem (e.g., integrating SQL query processing with machine learning).

When combined with AnswerRocket’s ability to translate a natural language query to SQL, users now have true self service big data discovery and visualization on Spark.

Demonstration

The demonstration above includes the loading of CSV files into Spark. We then configure AnswerRocket and demonstrate the ability to do search-driven analytics and big data exploration on Spark.
