Big Data Training Program

Big data is a blanket term for any collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand data management tools or traditional data processing applications.
The challenges include capturing, storing, searching, sharing, transferring, analysing and visualising. Big data usually includes data sets with sizes beyond the ability of commonly used software tools to capture, manage, and process the data within a tolerable elapsed time. Big data sizes are a constantly moving target, as of 2012 ranging from a few dozen terabytes to many petabytes of data in a single data set.
This program teaches learners how to build distributed, data-intensive applications using the Hadoop framework. A key part of the course is having learners deliver a Big Data project that demonstrates they know how to work with the tools.


  • Understand Hadoop architecture (HDFS and MapReduce)
  • Capture and Store Data using Sqoop, Flume, No SQL DB, HBDASE
