In SANSA, we combine distributed computing frameworks (specifically Spark and Flink) with the semantic technology stack. Here is an illustration:

The SANSA vision combines distributed analytics (left) and semantic technologies (right) into a scalable semantic analytics stack (top). The colours encode what part of the two original stacks influence which part of the SANSA stack. The main objective of SANSA is to investigate whether the characteristics of each technology stack (bottom) can be combined to retain the respective advantages.
