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.
