Title:
Building a framework for interactive dashboards using Spark and Cassandra

Abstract: Interactively querying terabytes of data can be challenging. To crack the problem we created a micro-services based scalable solution that can generate data cubes using data reduction technologies running on Spark to query a continuously growing Cassandra data store. We share lessons learned from the trenches and explain how to convert data into insights and insights into actions that drive change in the enterprise.
