Description

Course Description:

In course one of the AWS Big Data Specialty Data Collection learning path we explain the various data collection methods and techniques for determining the operational characteristics of a collection system. We explore how to define a collection system able to handle the frequency of data change and the type of data being ingested. We identify how to enforce data properties such as order, data structure, and metadata, and to ensure the durability and availability for our collection approach Intended audience: This course is intended for students looking to increase their knowledge of data collection methods and techniques with Big Data solutions.

Prerequisites:

While there are no formal pre-requisites students will benefit from having a basic understanding of analytics services available in AWS. Recommended courses - Analytics Fundamentals https://cloudacademy.com/amazon-web-services/analytics-fundamentals-for-aws-course/

Learning objectives:

  • Recognize and explain the operational characteristics of a collection system.
  • Recognize and explain how a collection system can be designed to handle the frequency of data change and type of data being ingested.
  • Recognize and identify properties that may need to be enforced by a collection system.

This course includes:

  • 45 minutes of high-defnition videos
  • Live hands-on demos
