Hands-on Hadoop


Get hands-on experience in analytics behind the keyboard and discover what works for you and your organisation

ba4all will organise at least one Business Application Session and one Technology deep dive in 2016, where a limited number of members can get acquainted with new tools in analytics in a full day training setting. These member-only sessions are practical one day immersions in an analytical tool for technology specialists as well as for business end users.


When an organization wants to dig into its Big Data these days, it’s almost inevitable that Hadoop, the open-source data storage and processing framework for dealing with extremely large data sets, will get the call. Hadoop has been gaining popularity as a business intelligence solution and the number of data analytics solutions offering Hadoop is growing exponentially. 

Why attend

  • Hadoop components and architecture
  • Usage of Hadoop tools (Hive, Pig, ...)
  • SQL-on-Hadoop
  • Self-Service Analytics and Hadoop

Who should attend

This session is best suited for anyone who want to use Hadoop and related tools to solve real-world problems.

Attendance is limited to 12 participants (members-only).


  • Big Data Hadoop Essentials
