Skip to 0 minutes and 6 secondsHi everyone and welcome to our Big Data Analytics collection of courses. My name is Kerrie Mengersen. In every minute of 2014 there were more than 204 million email messages sent, more than 2 million queries searched on Google, and more than 48 hours of new YouTube videos uploaded to the web. This is only per minute – can you imagine how much these values will increase per month, or per year? This is a significant increase in information, and over the years it’s only going to increase even more. From looking at these numbers it’s obvious we need fast and effective solutions for managing, storing and analysing all this data. This is where our Big Data Analytics collection of courses comes in.
Skip to 1 minute and 11 seconds In this first course we provide an introduction to the world of Big Data and look at how Big Data is applied to solve problems in different fields including health, environment and industry. We'll also showcase different tools for Big Data management. The entire list of tools available for Big Data management is extensive; here we select a few of the most well-known and important tools and show you how to best apply them. We are excited and we hope you are too.
