Big data usually includes data sets with sizes beyond the ability of commonly used software tools to capture, curate, manage, and process data within a tolerable elapsed time. Big data “size” is a constantly moving target, ranging from a few dozen terabytes to many petabytes of data. Big data requires a set of techniques and technologies with new forms of integration to reveal insights from datasets that are diverse, complex, and of a massive scale.

In this course we will be teaching some of the Big Data technologies including Apache Hadoop, Hives, Pig, Sqoop, Ambari, HDFC, Map Reduce, Yarn and others.
