Data-Intensive Thinking with DISPEL

Malcolm Atkinson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Chapter 4: "Data-intensive thinking with DISPEL", engages the reader with technical issues and solutions, by working through a sequence of examples, building up from a sketch of a solution to a large-scale data challenge. It uses the DISPEL language extensively, introducing its concepts and constructs. It shows how DISPEL may help designers, data-analysts, and engineers develop solutions to the requirements emerging in any data-intensive application domain. The reader is taken through simple steps initially, this then builds to conceptually complex steps that are necessary to cope with the realities of real data providers, real data, real distributed systems, and long-running processes.
