Registration is closed


Performing analytics on Big Data to extract business value is the goal of  any organization. Most tools that are used to perform such analysis require  programming in Java or Python. Not everyone knows Java programming to draw  values from their collected data. Pig and Hive, two tools from Apache open  source foundation, are designed to be used by non-programmers to address this  tremendous need. HBase is store vast amount of data and provide scalable  incremental access to it.
Users who know SQL prefer to use Hive QL (HQL) over PigLatin.  Unfortunately, Big Data is not always structured in a way that lends itself  nicely to the use of SQL analytics. It turns out that using PigLatin to scrub  the data before HQL is used has become the industry standard approach. To apply  this approach, users need to understand the nuances of how these tools work and  how they interface with each other.
This talk covers the following that address the above needs.

Learning  Objectives
•       Hadoop, HDFS,  MapReduce.
•       Hive and Hive Query Language  (HQL).
•       Pig and  PigLatin.
•       Interfacing Pig and Hive with  HBase
