Big Data with NoSQL Databases

The course discusses the motivations behind the development of Big Data and the technologies developed to handle the properties of Big Data.

These can usually not be handled by traditional database management systems due to the volume, variation and speed of the data with which they are generated. Alternative forms of representation of data have therefore evolved within the NoSQL framework. The course addresses different approaches to NoSQL within Hadoop, which is a modular framework that allows distributed storage and analysis of large amounts of data. The course covers different data sources and types of data including streaming data. The course also deals with predictive modelling with large amounts of data and gives examples of some typical applications.
