What Is a Transformer?

StreamSets Transformer Engine is an execution engine that runs data processing pipelines on Apache Spark. Spark ETL data pipelines can perform transformations that require heavy processing on the entire data set in batch or in streaming mode. You can install a Transformer Engine on any environment running Apache Spark.

Whether your data sources are on-prem, cloud-to-cloud or on-prem-to-cloud, use the pre-built connectors and native integrations to configure your Spark ETL pipeline without hand coding.
