About the course

The projects dealing with Big Data are not completely tied to one’s unique objectives. These projects are just thought of as scientific with no business goals or metrics. To gain the maximum benefit out of it, you need to point your Big Data to a specific need or problem of your business. To justify your investments for Big Data projects, you would require showcasing your results continuously. The demand is for business needs having rapid and agile data access. Businesses look for very low costs for data-driven discoveries. If operated properly, big data offers a wide range of possibilities to businesses today and in the future. The problem lies in the lack of not only skilled professionals and failure in proper execution but a lesser time in understanding the business case and no end-user research.

The key to success is a problem-first mindset, not the data or model first.

This course has been designed to equip analytics professionals and managers with an understanding of how big data analytics projects can be structured for successful adoption.

The main objective of this course is to provide attendees with a practical understanding of structuring big data projects for analytics, technical aspects of the project, and model development, aggregation, and monitoring.
