Introducing Your Degree
Big Data is recognized as one of the most important areas of future technology, and is fast gaining the attention of many industries, since it can provide high value to companies.
Data sets grow rapidly – in part because they are increasingly gathered by cheap and numerous information-sensing mobile devices, aerial (remote sensing), software logs, cameras, microphones, radio-frequency identification (RFID) readers and wireless sensor networks. The world's technological per-capita capacity to store information has roughly doubled every 40 months since the 1980s; as of 2012, every day 2.5 exabytes (2.5×1018) of data are generated. Important question for large enterprises is determining who should own big-data initiatives that affect the entire organization.
The educational program "Big Data Solutions" will help students understand the Big Data analytics capabilities and potential benefits and support them seeking to formulate more effective data-driven analytics strategies.
This program provides in-depth coverage of topics in Big Data from data generation, storage, management, and transfer to analytics, with focus on the state-of-the-art technologies, tools, architectures, and systems that constitute big-data computing solutions in high-performance networks. Real-life Big Data applications in various domains (particularly in science) are introduced as use cases to illustrate the development, deployment and testing of a wide spectrum of emerging Big Data solutions.
