From developer to analyst, this course tackles a few big questions about big data: Why does this technology exist and why do I need it? How can I get the best out of it utilizing something familiar like SQL and how does this all fit together in an ever-evolving eco-system? This course will introduce the concepts of distributed computing, Hadoop and MapReduce and then goes into great detail into Apache Hive which is an SQL-like query language that can be used with Hadoop and NoSQL databases like HBase and Cassandra. The course presents some challenges you might experience solving real production problems and how Hive makes that task easier to accomplish.
This course explains what Big Data, Hadoop and Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) data warehouse technologies are, and how the latter two are converging technologically. Products from Hadapt, Teradata, ParAccel, Microsoft and Cloudera -- all of which integrate with Apache Hadoop -- are investigated
When it comes to large scale data analysis, NoSQL databases may pose unique challenges - especially with reporting and aggregation. In this course, you will learn how to go beyond simple queries against collections. We will cover key techniques and strategies for digging up and aggregating data in a Big Data world using MongoDB.
In this course, ZDNet’s Big Data correspondent Andrew Brust teaches you all about Big Data. This course will get you up and running with the definitions and technologies you need to know, and the vendors you need to know about. By the end of the course, you’ll know what Big Data is, how it can integrate with conventional database and Business Intelligence (BI) technologies, and how to devise a strategy for adopting Big Data in your organization. No Big Data or NoSQL knowledge is required, but a lot will be imparted. This course is aimed at executives and business decision makers, and is actionable for technologists as well.
Analyzing terabytes of data can be daunting, so what do you do with petabytes? The era of Big Data is upon us and it's time to sharpen up the toolbox in this new genre of systems and technologies. In this course Ben explains the evolution of Big Data systems, as well as, the various architectures and popular vendors in this space. After covering the fundamentals of Big Data systems Ben covers how to access these systems using Tableau Software. Using Tableau Software he covers how to work with your Big Data and visualize in ways that will leave your boss singing your praise.
