Big data Analytics Course Syllabus (Content/ Outline) : The literal meaning of ‘Big Data’ seems to have developed a myopic understanding in the minds of aspiring big data enthusiasts. When asked people about Big Data, all they know is, ‘It is referred to as massive collection of data which cannot be used for computations unless supplied operated with some unconventional ways’.
Big Data, is not just about, storing and extracting data, but much more than that. Big Data, itself comprises of so many technologies that it is difficult to recall which one to start learning with. No really! Some of the technologies big data consists of is Hadoop, MapReduce, Apache, Pig, Hive, Flume, Sqoop, Zookeeper, Oozie, Spark, Cassandra, Mongo DB and what not!
Companies are desperately in search of skilled big data analysts. Considering the fact, that data is being collected and stored at a velocity faster than ever, the urgency of such skilled professionals increases further. Before delving into big data, I’d suggest you capture a complete understanding of this topic i.e. the full syllabus of big data. So, that next time when you take up any course, you are confident that you’ve read every essential topic in big data. This becomes important when there are large numbers of training providers in the market and you don’t know, which one has covered the maximum of syllabus.

Big Data Analytics Course Syllabus

Talking about training courses, the syllabus may vary depending on the course level (beginners or advanced). In here, I intend to provide a complete syllabus of mastering big data.
While searching for big data resources, I realized there isn’t a standard syllabus available which is globally recognized. The sequence may differ, depending on the course structure of training provider.
With the syllabus mentioned in this article, you should get a brief idea of all big data related technologies and what you should expect from you training provider. Recently, I read of ‘Black Book’ of Big Data and gathered some useful information parallel with internet search. Here’s the syllabus, covering beginners to advanced level concepts of Big Data:
