In this course, ZDNet’s Big Data correspondent Andrew Brust teaches you all about Big Data. This course will get you up and running with the definitions and technologies you need to know, and the vendors you need to know about. By the end of the course, you’ll know what Big Data is, how it can integrate with conventional database and Business Intelligence (BI) technologies, and how to devise a strategy for adopting Big Data in your organization. No Big Data or NoSQL knowledge is required, but a lot will be imparted. This course is aimed at executives and business decision makers, and is actionable for technologists as well.
