BigInsights Analytics for Programmers

Categories: Guaranteed To Run™, IBM

GK IBM LS Partner

Duration: 2 Days

This course is designed to aid programmers who are working with IBM InfoSphere BigInsights. Writing programs that extract data from unstructured text can be a daunting task. The student will learn how to create annotators through the use of IBM’s Annotated Query Language (AQL). Analyzing data using Apache Hadoop requires that map / reduce programs be written. The student will learn how to use Jaql to create high level programs that are decomposed into Hadoop map / reduce programs. People familiar with the Hadoop technology are aware of other open source products that are used in this environment. This course will give the student an overview of Apache Pig, ZooKeeper, and Map / Reduce.

This course does not cover InfoSphere BigSheets. InfoSphere BigSheets is covered in BigInsights Analytics for Business Analysts (DW640).
