Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Accept Science Data Analytics Platform (SDAP) into Apache Incubator

Hi Mike,

Excellent question and one which I asked myself to justify before stepping
up as Champion on this effort.

Basically, having spoken with the existing community, SDAP brings together
a suite of software tools which facilitates and defines a clear roadmap for
integration in terms of academic interests, software engineering and
technology infusion. A lot of work has already been done here by Thomas
Huang and colleagues across the member institutions mentioned in the
proposal. Additionally, a great deal of progress has been made here as
well. SDAP and the community platform provided by bringing this under the
SDAP umbrella at Apache furthers this goal with the key aim of building
community similar to what Hadoop has done with HDFS, MapReduce, YARN, etc.
under the Hadoop umbrella.

You will also see mention of a project named OceanWorks, Thomas is the
Principal Investigator of this project. Essentially OceanWorks aims to
enable science over the platform provided by SDAP in an operational
context. The aim of SDAP is however to harmonize the underlying
technologies such that they can be used more generically across the
scientific community for science outside of Oceanography. We aim to do this
at Apache.

I hope this makes sense, it does to me.
