Xomnia is a word combining the letter ‘X’ – the unknown – and “Omnia” – Latin for everything. Our team of data scientists and big data engineers are trained to find the undefined – X – in all the relevant data sources – Omnia. This unknown – X – is untapped business value. Combining the X and Omnia you get the Xomnia spirit. Eager, curious and dedicated people, who have the belief that the future is big data.
Apache Hadoop is one of the most well-known names in the big data landscape. During this training, we’ll introduce Apache Hadoop as a platform, and clarify where it fits into the big data landscape. We’ll take a look at where Apache Hadoop and the Big Data movement came from, what the underlying concepts are, and we’ll take a closer look at 2 of its most important components: the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and Hive.
After the training you understand the fundamental differences between BI and Big Data. You will learn the origin of Hadoop and Big Data. After learning about Apache Hadoop you will dive right in to applying the theory in practice. Using a personal sandbox environment you will familiarize yourself with the basic Hadoop components (HDFS & Hive).
Requirements: Familiarity with Databases and Business Intelligence concepts and tools.
