Big Data (Technical)


  • Participants should be very fluent in computer usage and its general technological concepts.
  • A previous course in statistics or probability is an edge to the course.


Data sets that have the potential to grow, even maximally, have to be managed effectively. This course provides the needed knowledge and training to use new Big Data tools and techniques to allow for more efficient and sustained data processing and analysis for informed business decision-making. It also offers new and innovative ways of storing information for the improvement of your data cache. And more importantly, participants will gain understanding and knowledge in learning how to store, manage, process and analyze huge amounts of unstructured data.
