Big data is a change agent that challenges the ways in which organizational leaders have traditionally made decisions. This course provides participants with the confidence to articulate big data architectures to support analytics driven solutions within their organizations. This course provides hands on experience with key big data technologies used to solve data intensive problems. Participants will gain the knowledge and skills they need to assemble and manage a large-scale big data analytics project. Lastly, participants will receive a conceptual introduction to the data structures that support machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence use cases.
Participants will work to identify areas within their organization that can be improved through big data-driven implementations, and the types of improvements that can be made through analytical processes. Participants will be led through a series of hands-on exercises and workshops, where they will have the chance to apply the test methods and practical approaches that they are learning throughout the course. At the end of the course, participants will produce an actionable big data plan and architectural diagram to be used as a blueprint proposal within their own organization.
