Support distributed execution through SPSS Modeler (ie Canvas) component

  • This component is not using the Spark backend of IBM® Data Science Experience Local.
  • There is no distribution of SPSS jobs at the moment that can leverage Spark or Cloudera backend.
  • Today a full IBM® Data Science Experience pipeline made of for example 1) Data Refinery + 2) SPSS + 3) Python Notebook cannot be executed by Spark or Cloudera. So this generated weak performances and longer response times.
  • We would like to have the SPSS Modeler component compatible with Spark and Cloudera distribution for execution and parallelizing jobs.
