However, the real value of these insights comes from their timeliness. Rapid delivery of insights enables anyone (not only data scientists) to make effective decisions, applying deep intelligence to every enterprise application.
Apache Spark is an integrated analytics framework and runtime to accelerate and simplify algorithm development, depoyment, and realization of business insight from analytics. Apache Spark on IBM® z/OS® puts the open source engine, augmented with unique differentiated features, built specifically for data science, where big data resides.
This IBM Redbooks® publication describes the installation and configuration of IBM z/OS Platform for Apache Spark for field teams and clients. Additionally, it includes examples of business analytics scenarios.
Nanomaterials for Wastewater Remediationintroduces techniques for nanoparticle formation and their benefits in environmental cleanup, as well as their recent advances and applications in wastewater treatment. The book follows a sequential approach for the treatment of wastewater, presenting state-of-the-art techniques for the characterization and measurement of nanomaterials.
Nanoparticles represent a promising new technology for wastewater remediation, not only because of their high treatment efficiency, but also for their cost effectiveness, as they have the flexibility for in situ and ex situ applications. New methods for developing nanomaterials with less environmental risk are described. Nanomaterials such as magnetic nanoparticles and graphene-based nanocomposites are discussed in detail. Also includes in-depth analyses of the ecotoxicological impacts of nanomaterials and the latest findings on the transport and fate of nanomaterials in the environment.Covers methods for the characterization of nanomaterials using advanced instrumental techniquesIncludes innovative methods for developing new nanomaterials while lessening their environmental riskProvides the latest methods for determining the transport and fate of nanomaterials in the environmentDiscusses in detail nanomaterials such as magnetic nanoparticles and graphene-based nanocomposites
