About FITIS TechForum 2015- BIG DATA

Big Data’ is a blanket term for any collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand database management tools or traditional data processing applications.

The challenges include capture, curation, storage, search, sharing, transfer, analysis and visualization. The trend to larger data sets is due to the additional information derivable from analysis of a single large set of related data, as compared to separate smaller sets with the same total amount of data, allowing correlations to be found to “spot business trends, determine quality of research, prevent diseases, link legal citations, combat crime, and determine real-time roadway traffic conditions.

On the other hand the Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. The whole field of big data is booming, and many organizations are actively looking out for the right talent to analyze vast amounts of data. Much of this is driven by the fact that big data if used properly has the potential to transform businesses and further provide them with a competitive advantage.

Successfully manage and process big data, various organizations are depending on new tools and technologies which require a niche expertise. Further, Big data will create more jobs by opening up plenty of opportunities for analysts, computer scientists, mathematicians and other data-savvy job seekers in the ICT Industry in Sri Lanka.

In spite of this explosion in business demand, organizations are currently short of experts who can make sense of unstructured data flowing from mobile devices, sensors, social media and other sources. To minimize the talent gap, FITIS is organizing this training which provides skills and training needed to manage and analyse big data.

Big data talent should consists of a combination of skills – good knowledge of statistical and analytical skills, an understanding of how big data can be used to make better business decisions; and computer programming expertise for big data analysis. So those who are ready to take the plunge and make a career in Big Data, knowing that the potential for high growth and success is tremendous, must take that first step in beginning their Big Data Training
