Description: Enterprises are solving business problems by building data applications that connect their business strategy with their technology and data. However, as business needs continue to change and new technologies – such as Apache Hadoop, Apache Tez and Apache Spark – emerge, organizations need a reliable way to quickly build and consistently deliver these data products. This requires leveraging existing skill sets, while meeting new requirements (i.e. latency, scale, service level agreements) supported by these emerging technologies.With more than 200,000 user downloads a month, Cascading is the de facto standard in open source application infrastructure technology. Supported by key strategic partnerships with Hortonworks, Elasticsearch, Databricks – and more – plus the broad support with all major Hadoop distributions, Cascading is the enterprise development framework of choice for data-centric applications. Used by Twitter, Etsy, eBay and The Climate Corp, Cascading allows businesses to leverage their existing skillsets (Java, SQL, etc.), investments and systems to build enterprise-class applications on Hadoop, and meets a variety of enterprise use cases from simple to complex. Cascading supports the Apache Tez computation fabric, with existing support for native MapReduce and local in-memory. Additionally, support for Apache Spark, Apache Storm and others will soon follow. This provides enterprises with the flexibility to run applications on the fabric that best meets their business needs.
