Course Overview

Interested in increasing your knowledge of the Big Data landscape? This course is for those new to data science and interested in understanding why the Big Data Era has come to be. It is for those who want to become conversant with the terminology and the core concepts behind big data problems, applications, and systems.

It is for those who want to start thinking about how Big Data might be useful in their business or career. It provides an introduction to one of the most common frameworks, Hadoop, that has made big data analysis easier and more accessible -- increasing the potential for data to transform our world!

This course is available on a face to face classroom training, live virtual class or online class training

Course Prerequisites

Who should attend this course
This course is for those new to data science. No prior programming experience is needed, although the ability to install applications and utilize a virtual machine is necessary to complete the hands-on assignments.

Hardware Requirements:
(A) Quad Core Processor (VT-x or AMD-V support recommended), 64-bit; (B) 8 GB RAM; (C) 20 GB disk free. How to find your hardware information: (Windows): Open System by clicking the Start button, right-clicking Computer, and then clicking Properties; (Mac): Open Overview by clicking on the Apple menu and clicking “About This Mac.” Most computers with 8 GB RAM purchased in the last 3 years will meet the minimum requirements.You will need a high speed internet connection because you will be downloading files up to 4 Gb in size.

Software Requirements:
This course relies on several open-source software tools, including Apache Hadoop. All required software can be downloaded and installed free of charge. Software requirements include: Windows 7+, Mac OS X 10.10+, Ubuntu 14.04+ or CentOS 6+ VirtualBox 5+.

Course Objectives

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the Big Data landscape including examples of real world big data problems including the three key sources of Big Data: people, organizations, and sensors.
  • Explain the V’s of Big Data (volume, velocity, variety, veracity, valence, and value) and why each impacts data collection, monitoring, storage, analysis and reporting.
  •  Get value out of Big Data by using a 5-step process to structure your analysis. * Identify what are and what are not big data problems and be able to recast big data problems as data science questions.
  • Provide an explanation of the architectural components and programming models used for scalable big data analysis.
  • Summarize the features and value of core Hadoop stack components including the YARN resource and job management system, the HDFS file system and the MapReduce programming model. * Install and run a program using Hadoop!
Course Content


Module 1: Big Data: Why and Where

Data -- it's been around (even digitally) for a while. What makes data "big" and where does this big data come from?

  • What launched the Big Data era?
  • Applications: What makes big data valuable
  • Getting Started: Where Does Big Data Come From?
  • Machine-Generated Data: It's Everywhere and There's a Lot!
  • Machine-Generated Data: Advantages
  • Big Data Generated By People: The Unstructured Challenge
  • Big Data Generated By People: How Is It Being Used?
  • Organization-Generated Data: Structured but often siloed
  • Organization-Generated Data: Benefits Come From Combining With Other Data Types
  • The Key: Integrating Diverse Data

Module 2: Characteristics of Big Data and Dimensions of Scalability

You may have heard of the "Big Vs". We'll give examples and descriptions of the commonly discussed 5. But, we want to propose a 6th V and we'll ask you to practice writing Big Data questions targeting this V -- value.

  • Getting Started: Characteristics Of Big Data
  • Characteristics of Big Data - Volume
  • Characteristics of Big Data - Variety
  • Characteristics of Big Data - Velocity
  • Characteristics of Big Data - Veracity
  • Characteristics of Big Data - Valence
  • The Sixth V: Value4m
