Applied data analytics with Azure Databricks

Azure Databricks is an Apache Spark–based analytics service for big data and data analytics on top. In this session we will create Databricks scenarios for useful business scenarios. Data engineers and business analysts (data scientists) can now work on RDD structured files using workbooks for collaborative projects, using ANSI SQL, R, Python or Scala, easily covering both analytical and machine learning solutions on one hand, and also giving the capabilities to use it as a data warehouse.
