Topic: An Enterprise Analytics Platform with Jupyter Notebooks and Apache Spark

IBM has built a “Data Science Experience” cloud service that exposes Notebook services at web scale. Behind this service, there are various components that power this platform, including Jupyter Notebooks, an enterprise gateway that manages the execution of the Jupyter Kernels and an Apache Spark cluster that power the computation. In this session we will describe our experience and best practices putting together this analytical platform as a service based on Jupyter Notebooks and Apache Spark, in particular how we built the Enterprise Gateway that enables all the Notebooks to share the Spark cluster computational resources.
