The Big Data Foundation certification is designed to provide candidates with a well-rounded understanding of big data. It covers the potential data sources that can be used for solving real business problems and an overview of data mining and the tools used in it.
This is a fundamental course with practical, hands-on, exercises to experience using two of the most popular technologies in big data processing – Hadoop and MongoDB. Candidates will get the opportunity to practice installing these two technologies through lab exercises. The course exposes candidates to real-life big data technologies with the purpose of obtaining results from real datasets, including major social media platforms.
After completing the course, candidates will be equipped with fundamental big data knowledge, and introduced to a working development environment containing Hadoop and MongoDB, installed by them. This practical knowledge can be used as a starting point in the journey into big data.
