- Prerequisite(s): BUS-S523
With the advent of “Big Data”, organizations have been turned to new options to manage and gain insights from the vast amount of data that is being collected. While storage costs themselves are relatively affordable, the bigger challenge has been finding an appropriate mechanism to manage the data as many technologies (e.g., relational databases, data warehouses) have limitations on the amount of data that can be stored or on the ability to process a large volume of unstructured data. This course focuses on making students aware of the paradigm of Big Data Management as well as some common approaches in which it can be analyzed to gain insights for decision-making.
