Certified Big Data Foundation Training & Certification

Course Overview:

Big Data Training and Certification course is targeted towards sharing a vast knowledge of Big Data and its fundamentals.  Big data is a field that treats ways to analyze, systematically extract information from, or otherwise, deal with data sets that are too large or complex to be dealt with by traditional data-processing application software. Data with many cases (rows) offer greater statistical power, while data with higher complexity (more attributes or columns) may lead to a higher false discovery rate. Big data challenges include capturing data, data storage, data analysis, search, sharing, transfer, visualization, querying, updating, information privacy, and data source. Big data was originally associated with three key concepts: volume, variety, and velocity. When we handle big data, we may not sample but simply observe and track what happens. Therefore, big data often includes data with sizes that exceed the capacity of traditional software to process within an acceptable time and value. In our Big Data Foundation training sessions, you’ll learn all about Big Data Fundamentals, Big Data Sources, Data Mining: Concepts and Tools, Big Data Technologies along with  Big Data and Hadoop Ecosystem tools such as HDFS, YARN, MapReduce, Hive, Pig, HBase, Spark, Oozie, Flume, and Sqoop.

Key Features:

  • Classroom and virtual  training during weekends
  • Study materials accredited by GSDC
  • Practice tests to make you certification ready
  • Vibrant presentation of real-life case studies
