Big Data in Practice: Data-Driven Financial Risk Modeling at Scale with ACTUS and Apache Spark

In this talk Kurt Stockinger will present a data-driven, distributed financial simulation engine built with Apache Spark that leverages the ACTUS standard as a computational kernel. We will review results of large-scale simulation experiments with portfolios of up to 100M financial contracts and provide detailed insights into how to build such a scalable big data system with state-of-the-art Apache Spark technology. We round up our talk with best practices and pitfalls of using big data technology and ACTUS at massive scale.
