We all know - Big Data is here in a Big way. However, processing that data can still be a Big challenge. This Big Data Overview provides an in-depth overview of the choices you have in processing Big Data. It provides an introduction to what Big Data is, the types of data you might have, approaches to working on and processing the data, and the capabilities, strengths, and weaknesses of those approaches.

After taking this course, you will have a clear understanding of what Big Data is and of the various types of data you may encounter.
