Arcitura Big Data School
The Big Data Certified Science Professional (BDCSP) program from the Arcitura Big Data School is being launched in January, 2014. This new program is dedicated to excellence in the fields of Big Data science, analysis, analytics, business intelligence, technology architecture, design and development, as well as governance. A collection of courses establishes a set of vendor-neutral industry certifications with different areas of specialization. The curriculum enables IT professionals to develop real-world Big Data science proficiency. Because of the vendor-neutral focus of the course materials, the skills acquired by attaining certifications are applicable to any vendor or open source platform. The first three course modules are now available for pre-order.
