Database Management

Microsoft Oracle


Today, organizations in every industry (i.e. healthcare, finance, retail, telecommunications & others) are being showered with imposing quantities of new information. Along with traditional sources, many more data channels encompassing un-structured data now exist. This proliferation of data from both structured and un-structured sources is giving rise to a phenomenon called "Big Data." Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important to utilize the right tools and techniques to capture and organize a wide variety of data types from different sources (both structured and un-structured), and to be able to easily analyze it within the context of all your enterprise data.

Who Should Enroll

This program is of interest to anyone who wants to use the powerful capabilities of relational databases in conjunction with the new "Big Data" management frameworks for data storage and retrieval, and for data analysis in support of management decision-making. Data architects, data analysts, database administrators and information technology staff members can all benefit from this program.
