Big Data: Using Hive on Spark with Jedox

With the release of Hive 1.1 in January 2015, Apache has now combined Spark, an open-source, cluster-computing project for processing large amounts of data, with Hive.

Until now, it was not possible to use Spark in the Jedox business intelligence platform and thus realise these performance gains. This was why we began our testing and investigations: We would like to show how Spark can be used in conjunction with Hive and, with some restrictions, with Jedox without having to make changes either to the queries or Jedox.

Using Hive on Spark with Jedox opens up completely new possibilities for preparing and evaluating Big Data databases!
