InfoSphere BigMatch v11.4 for Apache Hadoop

Categories: Guaranteed To Run™, IBM

GK IBM LS Partner

Duration: 2 Days

The IBM InfoSphere Big Match on Hadoop course will introduce students to the Probabilistic Matching Engine (PME) and how it can be used to resolve and discover entities across multiple data sets in Hadoop.   Students will learn the basics of a PME algorithm including data model configuration, standardization, comparison and bucketing functions, weight generation, and threshold. During the exercises, the student will work on a large use case, where they will apply their knowledge of Big Match to discover relationships be two data sets that can be used to understand the full view of the member data.

This course has no pre-requisites.

The course is designed for a technical audience that will be setting up a custom algorithm for the Probabilistic Matching Engine to use Big Match on Apache Hadoop to compare, match and/or search member records across multiple data sets.
