A recent MIT Sloan Management report found that organisations using business analytics are more than twice as likely to substantially outperform their competitive peers. Business Intelligence is the "In" thing for big enterprises nowadays: (from www.yellowfinbi.com)
BI and analytics have deposed cloud computing as top enterprise technology priority for the New Year according to a Gartner survey of 2,335 CIOs in 2012.
The analytics market will also be caught-up in a vast increase in worldwide IT spending, with IDC predicting a 6.9% rise to $1.8 trillion in 2012.
TechTarget's 2012 IT Priorities Survey - which polled more than 2,600 IT professionals and business analysts in a mix of job positions - found that 50% of those surveyed planned on increasing BI spending by 10% or more over the next year.
The demand for Big Data and Business Analytics professionals are so high that Harvard Business Review dubs Data Scientist as "The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century". This short course aims to provide the foundations for IT professionals to quickly jumpstart a Big Data Analytics project in their organizations.
- Program Benefits
This modular course is intended for the students who would like to learn how to store, manage, process and analyze massive amounts of unstructured data for competitive advantage; select and implement the correct Big Data stores; and apply sophisticated analytic techniques and tools to process and analyze big data. It establishes a strong working knowledge of the concepts, techniques, and products associated with Big Data. The course provides an overview of how to plan and implement a Big Data solution and the various technologies that comprise Big Data. Many examples and exercises of Big Data systems are provided throughout the course. The programming examples are in Java but the primary focus is on best practices that can be applied to any supported programming language. Those completing this course are encouraged to take an accreditation test on Hadoop's Big Data to obtain a professional certification at any time of their convenience
- Program Objectives
