Microsoft, IBM Make Analytics Announcements at Hadoop Conference

Apache Spark underlies many of the new products.


This week's Strata + Hadoop World conference has proved a popular place for vendors to make announcements related to their big data analytics offerings. For example, IBM launched IBM z/OS Platform for Apache Spark, which enables native Spark processing on the mainframe. Similarly, Microsoft unveiled a trio of big data offerings that run on its Azure cloud computing service: an updated version of Spark for Azure HDInsight, R Server for HDInsight and the Azure Data Catalog.
