Big data isn't just for the big players. Learn to use it in the real world!
"Big data" is a hot buzzword, but most organizations are struggling to put it to practical use. Without assuming any prior knowledge of Apache Hadoop or big data management, this course teaches a wide range of professional roles how to tap and manage the potential benefits of big data, including:

  • Discovering customer insights buried in your existing data
  • Uncovering product opportunities from data insights
  • Pinpointing decision points and criteria
  • Scaling your existing workflows and operations
  • Learning to ask questions that drive tangible business value from Big Data tools

This big data training course is an interactive, hands-on experience that doesn't require deep technical knowledge. In-depth real-world labs give you practical experience with an actual Hadoop environment and real big data strategies.
