An instructor-led classroom training for delegates with a strong foundation of the fundamental concepts and theories of Big Data. The curriculum of this course focuses on the six core modules of the Big Data Framework and discusses fundamental theories in statistics and machine learning. This certification is a prerequisite for all of the other Big Data Framework courses.
Course Duration : 3 Days
Information is Power. Enterprises that can make sense of data and information will be the big winners in this information economy. Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data - so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone. Data growth, speed and complexity are being driven by the deployment of billions of intelligent sensors, devices and platforms that are transmitting data (popularly called the Internet of Things). The data generated is known as Big Data. Big Data is not just about storing and managing data but also about using it effectively, efficiently to transform the way business make decisions.
The Enterprise Big Data Professional (EBDP) course is the only vendor-independent program that is dedicated to applying Big Data Best Practices towards enterprise organizations. The Enterprise Big Data course is the first level of the Big Data Framework course curriculum and certification program that is globally recognized. Big Data Framework is an independent organisation dedicated to upskilling individuals with expertise in Big Data.
This course will provide delegates with a fundamental understanding of Big Data and related technologies. In this comprehensive program, delegates will learn how to adopt, adapt and apply the fundamental principles of Big Data in their own organization to realize business benefits. Practical examples embedded in the course will help participants gain a better understanding about how Big Data can be used in actual situations.
