8 Ways to Optimize AWS Glue Jobs in a Nutshell

  Improving the performance of AWS Glue jobs involves several strategies that target different aspects of the ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) process. Here are some key practices. 1. Optimize Job Scripts Partitioning : Ensure your data is properly partitioned. Partitioning divides your data into manageable chunks, allowing parallel processing and reducing the amount of data scanned. Filtering : Apply pushdown predicates to filter data early in the ETL process, reducing the amount of data processed downstream. Compression : Use compressed file formats (e.g., Parquet, ORC) for your data sources and sinks. These formats not only reduce storage costs but also improve I/O performance. Optimize Transformations : Minimize the number of transformations and actions in your script. Combine transformations where possible and use DataFrame APIs which are optimized for performance. 2. Use Appropriate Data Formats Parquet and ORC : These columnar formats are efficient for storage and querying, signif

New Directions for Digital Products (1 of 2)

We already crossed Agriculture, Industrial, Information age. Now we are in digitization age. Many companies investing huge money in digitization. Mphasis - is betting on the digitization of Financial institutions Tech Mahindra - started research on Heath care digitization Infosys - focusing on Automation and artificial intelligence TCS - focussing on Machine learning WIPRO - is focusing on Big data and Hadoop What is digitization What we mean by digital. Digital data is distinguished from analog data in that the datum is represented in discrete, discontinuous values, rather than the continuous, wavelike values of analog. Thus, the digitization of data refers to the conversion of information into binary code, allowing for more efficient transmission and storage of data. A key differentiator of our current age from prior human history is that, as of the last decade, we not only convert data to a digital format, but we also create data in a digital format. Thus, we now h
