Course Code: CEBD 1250
Glad to see you back! The world is in dire need of people like you who can tap into Big Data and use it to solve real business challenges. And that's exactly what you'll do in this course. You'll learn how to create a data lake from Big Data (Really? "Data lake?" Don't worry, it'll become apparent later on). Then you'll learn how to identify and collect structured and unstructured data and store it into a NoSQL / Hadoop infrastructure. And once you've learned how to do that, you'll be two thirds of the way to earning your certificate of Big Data Business Analytics and Visualization and opening the doors to your new career. There's no time to waste, let's get to it!
Basic knowledge of SQL is highly recommended. Note that you will be required to do 5-10 hours of work per week outside of class time. Those with little to no prior knowledge will require more time to gain familiarity with the concepts.

Your take-away

This course is a great way to help you:
• Discover how to create a data lake from Big Data sources;
• Compare different types of NoSQL storage architectures and solutions;
• Use Hadoop to store structured and unstructured data.

Our approach

In this course, you'll gain real-world knowledge, experience and insights through lectures from experienced pros who'll show you the ropes. More excitingly, you'll learn through hands-on projects using the most powerful equipment and the very latest software like data transformation tools, NoSQL and Hadoop, Data Visualization and Data Storytelling tools. You can't get skills like this on YouTube.
