Why study this course

This is a foundation-level course designed to provide you with an understanding of Big Data, the potential sources of Big Data 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 exercises designed to provide you with some degree of hands-on experience in using two of the most popular technologies in Big Data processing: Hadoop and MongoDB. You will get the opportunity to practice installing these two technologies through our Work-Labs. The course exposes you to real-life Big Data technologies with the purpose of obtaining results from real datasets from Twitter.

After completing the course, you will be equipped not only with fundamental Big Data knowledge, but will also be introduced to a working development environment containing Hadoop and MongoDB, installed by yourself. This practical knowledge can be used as a starting point in the organisational Big Data journey.

Exams are not included with the Cloud Credential Courses at this time.
