Big Data

We offer 4 courses related to Big Data. Big Data Foundation, Hadoop Administration, Hadoop Development and Big Data Analytics. For someone new to the world of Big Data, these courses can be taken up sequentially.

Big Data is a process to deliver decision-making insights. The process uses people and technology to quickly analyze large amounts of data of different types (traditional table structured data and unstructured data, such as pictures, video, email, transaction data, and social media interactions) from a variety of sources to produce a stream of actionable knowledge.

Organizations increasingly need to analyze information to make decisions for achieving greater efficiency, profits, and productivity. As relational databases have grown in size to satisfy these requirements, organizations have also looked at other technologies for storing vast amounts of information. These new systems are often referred to under the umbrella term "Big Data."

Gartner has identified three key characteristics for big data: Volume, Velocity, and Variety. Traditional structured systems are efficient at dealing with high volumes and velocity of data; however, traditional systems are not the most efficient solution for handling a variety of unstructured data sources or semistructured data sources. Big Data solutions can enable the processing of many different types of formats beyond traditional transactional systems. Definitions for Volume, Velocity, and Variety vary, but most big data definitions are concerned with amounts of information that are too difficult for traditional systems to handle—either the volume is too much, the velocity is too fast, or the variety is too complex.

We offer multiple Big Data related courses. For someone new to the world of Big Data, we recommend starting with the Big Data Foundation course.

Big Data Foundation
3 days
This course covers the foundational knowledge of Big Data technologies such as Hadoop and MongoDB. Our Big Data Foundation course is a good place to start in case you do not have any experience with Big Data. It provides information on the best practices in devising a Big Data solution for your organization.
