We live in the information age where business success is grounded on the ability of organizations to convert raw data coming from various sources into high-grade business information.

Many organizations are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information they have to process in order to stay competitive.  Traditional database systems may become either prohibitively expensive to handle the exponential growth of data volumes or found unsuitable for the job.  At this point, the data gets mystically morphed into the Big Data.

This Introduction to Big Data and NoSQL training course provides an introduction to Big Data as well as NoSQL (Not Only SQL) database systems.  The fundamental concepts of and ideas behind Big Data / NoSQL technologies are methodically explored and many buzzwords demystified.  The course is supplemented by hands-on labs that help attendees reinforce their theoretical knowledge of the subject.


Topics:

  •     Defining Big Data
  •     Big Data Stores Overview
  •     NoSQL
  •     Big Data Business Intelligence and Analytics
  •     Real World Case Studies
  •     Adopting NoSQL

“Given the breadth of the course, I think it was very well structured and organised, I got a lot
out of it.”     

 

JVM Tuning - Bespoke Course

“This was an excellent course and was lots of fun to attend. Instructor started with basic intro to
containerization, then explained Kubernetes and the different components (Container
engine, orchestrator, control plane) which all made sense because of the containerization
intro. The parts of the course layered on top of one another to give a good understanding of
Kubernetes.”
