User Group Meetup: Bio-manufacturing Optimization using Apache NiFi, Kafka and Spark

Topic : Bio-manufacturing Optimization using Apache NiFi, Kafka and Spark

Abstract:  A common use case we see at Hortonworks is how sensor data can be ingested to provide real time alerting and actionable intelligence. Biologics Manufacturing is an example of a Modern Data Application running on the Hortonworks Connected Platform powered by 100% open source Hadoop.

This presentation will demonstrate how the Hortonworks Connected Platform can be used to optimize the manufacturing of biologics (vaccines). The demo leverages many of the major components of Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and Hortonworks Data Flow (HDF) including Apache NiFi, Kafka, HBase, Storm, and Slider to create a real time visualization of the manufacturing process with alerts and yield predictions.  In this demo you will see:

• ​​Ingestion of bio-manufacturing sensor data with Apache NiFi and streaming to a processing engine using Kafka.

• Data processing in Apache Spark and storage of time series metrics in Apache HBase.

• A real time dashboard providing visualization for pH, Oxygen, and temperature control.

• When critical thresholds are breached, alerts are visible in the affected stage.
