Data analysts and business intelligence specialists have been at the heart of new trends driving business growth over the past decade, including log file and social media analytics. However, Big Data heretofore has been beyond the reach of analysts because traditional tools like relational databases don't scale, and scalable systems like Hadoop have historically required Java expertise.
Today, the rise of new ecosystem tools is rapidly broadening the community using Hadoop and Big Data. Projects like Cloudera Impala and Apache Hive and Pig have for the first time made large-scale analysis on multi-structured data accessible to those with traditional analytics skills. Cloudera’s new Data Analyst training focuses on the technical skills analysts need to deliver value from Big Data in Hadoop using SQL and familiar scripting languages.
Register for our Introduction to Data Analyst Training webinar on Thursday, July 18 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET to learn who is best suited to attend the full training, what prior knowledge you should have, and what topics the course covers. Cloudera Senior Curriculum Manager, Tom Wheeler, will discuss the skills you will attain during the course and how they will help you perform business-critical analyses using Big Data in Hadoop.
During the webinar, Tom will also present a short portion of the actual Cloudera Data Analyst course, discussing the fundamentals of Cloudera Impala, Apache Hive, and Apache Pig, how they relate to each other, and for which jobs each is used. Following the presentation, Tom will lead a Q&A and answer all your questions about this or any of Cloudera's other training courses.
