Big Data Foundation™

The Cloud Credential Council (CCC) Big Data Foundation™ certification is essential for anyone interested in gaining the Big Data knowledge required to create value in real-world applications.

Why should you attend?

This is a fundamental course with practical exercises designed to provide you with hands-on experience in two of the most popular technologies in Big Data processing – Hadoop and MongoDB.

Representing a revolution in the field of IT, data analytics has become an absolute necessity for organizations seeking to gain a competitive edge. Amazon, GE, American Express and Netflix are only some of the few major names investing in this field so as to harness the power of data. A great return of investment has been reported as the result of the automation of processes and the insights acquired.
Data in itself is not important. It’s what organizations do with it that matters. Unfortunately for many organizations, however, there’s a limited amount of professionals acquainted with the field who are adequately prepared to implement their knowledge and help organizations grow. 

By attending you get :

  • Gain an industry-recognised certification
