There are quintillion bytes of data being generated every day. Big Data Science techniques provide the necessary approaches to sift through this avalanche of data and find the information that is relevant to the needs of your organisation. In this course, you will learn the algorithms, mathematical and statistical techniques and application of analytics to process Big Data.

Get a sample of the contents of this course with this short video lesson that provides a non-technical introduction to Big Data Analysis. This second video lesson is an introduction to Big Data Analytics. Both of these topics are part of Module 1 of the course.

The eLearning kit bundle provides access to a 5 Module course bundle that will be available for 1 year from the date of purchase. The course outline is provided in the Details tab, you can also download a pdf version here. You can also take the on-line exam to get a Digital Badge to show your expertise in this field.

•Big Data Processing (Parallel Data Processing, Distributed Data Processing, SharedEverything/Nothing Architecture, SCV)

Module 4: Big Data Analysis & Technology Lab

This course module presents participants with a series of exercises and problems designed to test their ability to apply knowledge of topics covered previously in course modules 1 and 2. Completing this lab will help highlight areas that require further attention, and will further prove hands-on proficiency in Big Data analysis and technology and practices as they are applied and combined to solve real-world problems.

As a hands-on lab, this module provides a set of detailed exercises that require participants to solve a number of inter-related problems, with the goal of fostering a comprehensive understanding of how Big Data environments work from both front and back-ends, and how they are used to solve real-world analysis and analytics problems.


Exams & Certification

  • Those that pass the exams required for the Certified Big Data Science Professional designation will receive official certificate for this designation and will have access to the benefits associated with this certification.
  • The exams required for certification can be taken at any Pearson VUE testing center in the world or online via Pearson VUE Online Proctoring.
