Big Data Database: NoSQL

General Information

Big data technology has emerged from massive amount of data and become the mainstream of IT technology. In contrast to ‘Relational Database Management System (RDBMS)’, NoSQL features including its dispersible and unstructured nature, Hadoop-compatibility, in-memory and MapReduce-compatibility, are all commonly used in major global industries. In addition to major tech companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft, NoSQL products have also become a fundamental corner stone in other industries such as Walmart, Samsung, Comcast, and Taobao.

Instead of replacing RDBMS, NoSQL works with RDBMS in a collaborative nature. Both will exist in the information infrastructure to provide enterprise level essential services namely data storage, data warehouse, data analysis, streaming, in-time analysis, and business intelligence. To encompass Big data, NoSQL is the most important technology besides Hadoop.

This NoSQL certification validates the participants’ abilities to deal with ‘real’ data of “big data”. Upon passing the test of Big Data and Hadoop certificates, the NoSQL certificate serves as the last mile of understanding big data concepts, building big data running environment (hadoop), and manipulating data record by record. You will not only have a comprehensive view of essentials, operations, and ‘real-life’ CRUD of big data, but also gain competence in future studies, job seeking, or promotion.
