Hadoop VS Spark: Which is the best Data Analytics engine?

@machinelearnbot

In the book Hadoop: The definitive guide, Tom white quotes Grace Hopper, "In pioneer days they used oxen for heavy pulling, and when one ox couldn't budge a log, they didn't try to grow a larger ox. We shouldn't be trying for bigger computers, but for more systems of computers." For long Hadoop has been the data analytics system preferred by businesses all over. The recent entry of the spark engine has however given businesses an option other than Hadoop for data analytics purposes. A lot of discussion among experts in the field of big data analytics is over which of the two data analytics engines, the Hadoop or the Spark, is the better performer when it comes to applications in business.

A lot of discussion among experts in the field of big data analytics is over which of the two data analytics engines, the Hadoop or the Spark, is the better performer when it comes to applications in business. While Hadoop has been around for a long time, Spark is a new data analytics system released just couple of months ago. Both systems have been developed by apache, with both systems being an open source platform. Both Hadoop and Spark have their own plus points with regard to performance. There are some applications in which Hadoop scores above Spark, but Sparks ease of use and speed of operations is way ahead of Hadoop.

Big data is no longer just a buzzword. Researchers at Forrester have "found that, in 2016, almost 40 percent of firms are implementing and expanding big data technology adoption. Another 30 percent are planning to adopt big data in the next 12 months." Similarly, the Big Data Executive Survey 2016 from NewVantage Partners found that 62.5 percent of firms now have at least one big data project in production, and only 5.4 percent of organizations have no big data initiatives planned or underway. Researchers say the adoption of big data technologies is unlikely to slow anytime soon.

Makes me feel sad for the rest. Actually, that's a movie ("The Spy that Loved Me") that Netflix recommends for me since I'm a James Bond junkie and Netflix knows that. In fact, Netflix knows a lot about me as it knows a lot about all of its viewers, which is one reason why Netflix is a Wall Street darling and has rewarded its stockholders very well over the past couple of years (see Figure 1). But Netflix isn't doing anything that other organizations cannot do. To replicate Netflix's business success starts with thinking differently about the role of data and analytics in powering the organization's business.
