Data Engineering with StreamSets DataOps Platform

StreamSets Transformer is an execution engine within the StreamSets DataOps platform that allows users to create data processing pipelines that execute on Spark. Using a simple to use drag and drop UI users can create pipelines for performing ETL, stream processing and machine learning operations. It allows everyone, not just the savvy Spark developers, but also the Data Analysts, Data Scientists or legacy ETL developers to fully utilize the power of Apache Spark without requiring a deep technical understanding of the platform with minimal operational and configuration overhead.

StreamSets Transformer pipelines are heavily instrumented and provide deep visibility into the execution of Spark applications. Users can see exactly how long every operation takes, how much data gets transferred at every stage, and view proactive and contextual error messages if and when problems occur. These features add an abstraction layer on top of the internals of Apache Spark and allow data engineers to focus on solving the core business problem.
