Arben Asllani, University of Tennessee Chattanooga

Overview


The availability of big data is increasing as is the need for people to prepare and analyze it. Big Data Technologies for Business seeks to fill this need by presenting the material in a manner accessible to a broad audience including non-technical managers, business students and other professionals. Big data technologies are no longer the exclusive province of dedicated computer programmers. This book assumes little or no prior programming experience. Topics are introduced conceptually, intuitively, with pseudocode, and with fully worked examples including code. In this manner, students learn to use various essential technologies including, among others, Hadoop, Spark and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
