Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Andrew Brust, and welcome to my course, Big data: The Big Picture. I'm an industry analyst and tech blogger on all things data and a Pluralsight author with courses in the Big Data analytics and business intelligence domains. Are you new to Big Data Analytics or interested in learning more about the topic? Do you want to learn about data lake and data warehouse technologies and the key vendors behind them, or establishing a data culture in your organization? Well, in this course, we'll work on getting you that knowledge. I'll help you learn all about Big Data and many of the underlying concepts and technologies that you should know. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include why Big Data technology came about and how it has evolved, major Big Data technologies, their capabilities, and the leading vendors behind them, a maturity model for Big Data determining where your organization fits on it and how to advance through it. By the end of this course, you'll have the technology, context, and market understanding needed to plan a Big Data technology implementation for your team, business unit, or organization. Before beginning the course, you should have at least an entry level understanding of relational databases. Some knowledge of or interest in analytics and/or business intelligence is helpful too, but not required. From here, you should feel comfortable diving further into courses in Big Data or data analytics learning paths or other Big Data related courses at Pluralsight to help solidify your knowledge and push yourself to increase your skills. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn more about Big Data with the Big Data: The Big Picture course, at Pluralsight.
