    Course Overview

    Introduction to Big Data

    From data-driven strategies to decision making, our future capabilities heavily rely on big data technologies. In this course, you learn about the core concepts behind big data problems, applications, and systems. Understand the different ways to manage big data and how Hadoop fits into this role.

    Introduction to the Hadoop Framework

    Hadoop is an open-source software framework for storing data and running applications on clusters of commodity hardware. Master the Hadoop framework's features and learn how to install and run programs on it!


    MapReduce is an application framework that you can use to develop and run applications on Hadoop and Spark. We discuss MapReduce phases and data processing methods for various file formats along with real-world examples.


    Spark's usage is 21%, up from last year's modest 3% as it is being viewed as the next generation Hadoop. It is an open-source data processing framework that runs up to 100 times faster than MapReduce, supports real-time stream processing of data, provides high-level APIs in Java, Python, Scala, and R, and also comes with an in-built machine-learning library, MLib.

    We will cover Spark's programming model in much detail and teach you how to install, run, and interact with Spark to analyze real-world datasets.


    Pig is a dataflow language that is built on top of Hadoop to make it easier to process, clean, and analyze big data. We teach you how to execute its Hadoop jobs in MapReduce and Spark.


    Kafka is a distributed streaming platform that lets you build real-time streaming applications and data pipelines through a combination of messaging, storage, and stream processing. We teach you how to transform data as it arrives.


    Get introduced to Hive and its similarity with SQL and learn to write Hive Query Language (HQL) statements. Understand the architecture of Hive, databases creation, tables, and perform various operations using it.


    HBase is a non-relational (NoSQL) database that runs on top of HDFS and is natively integrated with Hadoop. Learn how to combine data sources that use a wide variety of different structures and schemas.

    Sqoop and Flume

    Import and export data from traditional databases, like SQL, Oracle to Hadoop using Apache® Sqoop to perform various operations. Master how to import streaming data into Hadoop using Apache® Flume.


    Learn about Oozie and implement it in the workflow to schedule a Hadoop job.

    Basics of Linux and Java

    The course begins with the fundamentals of Linux, Java and Scala that are necessary to learn Hadoop and Spark.

    What is this course about?

    Our community of mentors and SMEs intend to take you to a professional level of proficiency so that you can compete for the most sought-after big datajobs. We do this through assessments, making sure you are skilling up at every step, providing feedback on what you need to improve, and timely guidance on how to break into the big data industry.

    Our course provides serious beginners and professionals with a solid background in Hadoop and Spark that is used to effectively collect and manage extremely large amounts of information, perform data-driven discoveries and predictions, and extract value and competitive intelligence for their organizations. This course is highly application driven and we help you build several projects to understand the core concepts better.

    Why is this course focusing on Apache Spark?

    Spark usage is 21%, up from last year's modest 3%. All major companies like IBM, Cloudera, Uber, Netflix, etc.,havealready switched to Spark from MapReduce. They're doing this because Spark is significantly faster and easier to use as it includes tools, such as real-time processing, machine learning, and interactive SQL, that are well suited for analyzing real-time data.

    How do Data Scientists differ from Big Data Developers?

    Data scientists handle business needs as and when requirements arise, they also prepare plans to implement the analytics project.

    A big data developer, on the other hand, is responsible for the design and implementation of applications to perform analysis on the data generated to uncover insights and to make a business intelligent by analyzing data from various sources.

    What are the prerequisites for taking this course?

    Hadoop and Spark require basic knowledge of Linux and Java, or any other object-oriented programming language. Having said that, the course covers the basics of these to ensure that those without any prior knowledge are brought up to speed before starting the sessions on Big Data.

    What are the software and hardware requirements?

    • Microsoft® Windows® 7/8/10 (32- or 64-bit)
    • 4GB RAM minimum, 8 GB RAM recommended
    • i3 or higher processor
    • Internet speed: Minimum 1 Mb/s
    • Intel® VT-x (Virtualization Technology) should be enabled

    How much time commitment does this course require?

    We expect you to have at least 10–15 hours per week handy to go through this course.

    Are you going to help me develop the projects?

    Yes and no. Our curriculum has been designed in a way tointroduce concepts slowly, and plenty of exercises are given before you set out to develop your first project. You can either choose to develop from our existing repertoire of custom projects or think one of your own!

    Our SME team helps you along the way.

    What if I miss a class?

    Do not worry, you can access the session recording of your missed class on our dashboard anytime

    Can I continue the course after taking a break?

    We care that you successfully complete the course and walk out with a certification.
