This talk will discuss how the Apache Arrow ecosystem has evolved over the last year to become the de facto standard for bridging data science. We’ll look at the technical changes in Arrow, as well as how new projects like Substrait aim to complement and extend Arrow’s functionality. Finally, after years of growth, Arrow is not only an open source de facto standard, but an enterprise one as well. As enterprises increasingly depend on Arrow, we’ll discuss how Voltron Data is improving their experience and the Arrow project.Apache-Arrow_-The-Open-Source-Standard-becomes-an-Enterprise-Necessity-BO356
