- Carefully crafted checklists for Architects, Infosec, QA, Dev, Ops
- Collaborative readiness review conducted with your entire team
- Personalized report reveals where production readiness gaps exist
From architecture and security concerns to operational hurdles, the complexity of an enterprise-scale production deployment can increase rapidly. The Production Readiness Review reveals potential blockers for deployment across your entire project team - Infosec, QA, Dev, Ops - and provides recommendations for improvement well before launch day if gaps exist.
Post-Launch Health Check
- Review business objectives, technical/function requirements
- Review architecture, design, and code and best practice recommendations

Education - 2-Day Apache Spark Workshop
- Understand how Spark works
- Understand the basics of integrating Spark with Akka and Hadoop
- Understand how to use the Spark Scala API for offline (batch-mode) and event-streaming applications
Apache Spark has emerged as the next-generation platform for writing Big Data applications for Hadoop and Mesos clusters. Part of Spark’s success is due to the Lightbend foundation it’s built upon: Scala and Akka. This two-day workshop is designed to teach developers—rather than data scientists—how to implement data analytics using Apache Spark for Reactive applications.
