Big Data, Introduction | DBDA.X401

In the new paradigm of Big Data where we trust distributed systems to process information across server clusters, we increasingly rely on technologies to manage the massive amounts of information generated by social media, online transactions, web logs, and sensors. These technologies include handling unstructured, semi-structured, and structured data, as well as processing, real-time analytics, and visualization. They are especially useful for reporting in circumstances where a relational database approach is not effective or is too costly.

In this comprehensive introductory course for managers, analysts, architects and developers, you will gain insights into cloud-based Big Data architectures. We will cover Hadoop, Spark and other Big Data platforms based on SQL, such as Hive.

The first half of the course includes an overview of the Big Data technologies and frameworks such as HDFS, MapReduce, Spark, Kafka and Hive. The second half of the course will cover writing programs in Spark and Hive and how to design Big Data applications.

The course consists of interactive lectures, in-class labs, and take-home practice exercises. You’ll complete this course with a deep understanding of the tools to build Big Data applications using MapReduce, Spark, and Hive.
