With its support for batch and real-time data processing, Spark is one of the most exciting new tools in the big data space. And data integration is still the key “ingredient” that brings a variety of sources together, including real-time big data.
A new report by MCG Global Services evaluates leading integration vendors, and benchmarks their performance against two key criteria:
- The depth by which a tool leverages Hadoop
- The performance of integration jobs
The report notes that these key differentiators “could spell the difference for a “just-in-time” answer to a business question and a “too-little-too-late” result.”
