This feature gives data scientists a way to create web applications/dashboards and easily share them with other business stakeholders. Applications can range from single visualizations embedded in reports, to rich dashboard solutions such as Tableau. They can be interactive or non-interactive.
Applications stand alongside other existing forms of workloads in CDSW (sessions, jobs, experiments, models). Like all other workloads, applications must be created within the scope of a project. Each application is launched within its own isolated engine. Additionally, like models, engines launched for applications do not time out automatically. They will run as long as the web application needs to be accessible by any users and must be stopped manually when needed.
