  • Why become a Big Data Hadoop Architect?

    In addition to being responsible for planning and designing next-generation Big Data systems, Hadoop architects also manage large-scale development and deployment of Hadoop applications. Big Data Hadoop Architects have become the critical link between business and technology.

  • What projects are included in this program?

    This Big Data Hadoop Architect Master's program includes 12+ real-life, industry-based projects on different domains to help you master concepts of Big Data Architect like Clusters, Scalability, Configuration. A few of the projects, that you will be working on are mentioned below:

    Project 1: See how large MNCs like Microsoft, Nestle, PepsiCo, set up their Big data clusters by gaining hands-on experience on the same
    Project Title: Scalability-Deploying Multiple Clusters
    Description: Your company wants to set up a new cluster and has procured new machines; however, setting up clusters on new machines will take time. Meanwhile, your company wants you to set up a new cluster on the same set of machines and start testing the new cluster’s working and applications.

    Project 2: Understand how companies like Facebook, Amazon, Flipkart leverage on Big Data Clusters using the below case study.
    Project Title: Working with Clusters
    Description: Demonstrate your understanding of the following tasks (give the steps):

    • Enabling and disabling HA for namenode and resourcemanager in CDH
    • Removing Hue service from your cluster, which has other services such as Hive, HBase, HDFS, and YARN setup
    • Adding a user and granting read access to your Cloudera cluster
    • Changing replication and block size of your cluster
    • Adding Hue as a service, logging in as user HUE, and downloading examples for Hive, Pig, job designer, and others

    Project 3: See how banks like Citigroup, Bank of America, ICICI, HDFC make use of Big Data to stay ahead of the competition. 
    Domain: Banking
    Description: A Portuguese banking institution ran a marketing campaign to convince potential customers to invest in a bank term deposit. Their marketing campaigns were conducted through phone calls, and sometimes the same customer was contacted more than once. Your job is to analyze the data collected from the marketing campaign.

    Project 4: Learn how Telecom giants like AT&T, Vodafone, Airtel make use of Big Data by working on a real-life project based on telecommunication.
    Domain: Telecommunication
    Description: A mobile phone service provider has launched a new Open Network campaign. The company has invited users to raise complaints about the towers in their locality if they face issues with their mobile network. The company has collected the dataset of users who raised a complaint. The fourth and the fifth field of the dataset has a latitude and longitude of users, which is important information for the company. You must find this latitude and longitude information on the basis of the available dataset and create three clusters of users with a k-means algorithm.

    Project 5: Understand how entertainment companies like Netflix, Amazon Prime leverage on Big Data.
    Domain: Movie Industry 
    Description: US-based university has collected datasets which represent reviews of movies from multiple reviewers as a part of Research Project. To gain in-depth insights from research data collected you have to perform a series of tasks in Spark on the dataset provided.

    Project 6: Learn how E-Learning companies like Simplilearn, Lynda, Pluralsight make use of NoSQL and Big Data technology.
    Domain: E-Learning Industry
    Description: Design a Web application for a leading E-learning organization using MongoDB to support read and write scalability. You can use web technologies such as HTML, JavaScript (JSP), Servlet, and Java. Using this Web application, a user should able to add, retrieve, edit, and delete the course information using MongoDB as the backend database.  Screenshots for the GUI are shown below.  Note that it is not mandatory to use Java technologies. You can choose any technology that you are comfortable with to design this Web application.
