Insurance in 2020 & Beyond - Learning from the past decade to plan for the next

Like many other people, I used time over the recent holidays to clean out and organize my digital files. In that process, I finally trashed the speaking notes for a panel I participated in at SMA’s (Strategy Meets Action) first summit in 2012 when I worked at a large global insurer.

Introducing Apache Spark on Docker on top of Apache YARN with CDP DataCenter release

Bringing your own libraries to run a Spark job on a shared YARN cluster can be a huge pain. In the past, you had to install the dependencies independently on each host or use different Python package management softwares.
