Spark Structured Streaming in Practice

Spark Structured Streaming provides the means to express streaming computations the same way as it would be made with static data. The built-in engine is incrementally and continuously updating the final results as streaming data continues to arrive. We’ll cover how a real life implementation of Spark Structured Streaming on top of a Hadoop Cluster is helping a big online retailer to analyse clickstream data and aggregate it with customer history information.

Blockchain Explained

Blockchain is a shared, replicated ledger. Its reach is wider than just crypto-currencies, as it provides the foundation for a new generation of transactional applications that establish trust and transparency, while streamlining business processes. Come along to this session to find out more about Blockchain and see it in action, and discover the future plans that IBM and the Linux Foundation are building for Blockchain.
