Organizations in Canada are undergoing revolutionary changes in the ways they build their business strategies with the advent of increased mobile technology, cloud computing, and data analytics. The Lambton College Cloud Computing for Big Data, Ontario College Graduate Certificate allows students the opportunity to gain an understanding of these cutting edge technologies and applications of cloud computing and its virtualization used in servers, desktops, embedded and mobile devices.
The curriculum will delve into Big Data as a collection of large and complex data sets and the challenges of capture, curation, storage, search, sharing, analysis, and visualization. Big Data technology training covers managing the volume, velocity, and variety of unstructured data to provide organizations with actionable information that guides informed business decisions. In addition to a full range of enhanced virtualization deployment, cloud computing and Big Data theory, students apply this knowledge to a variety of open-source and vendor-specific virtualization solutions, including Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware and QEMU technologies and Big Data solutions such as Apache Hadoop.
