BDSCP Module 8:
Advanced Big Data Engineering

This course builds upon Module 7 by exploring advanced engineering topics pertaining primarily to the storage and processing of Big Data datasets. Specifically, it covers advanced Big Data engineering mechanisms, in-memory data storage and realtime data processing.

The course presents further considerations for building MapReduce algorithms and also introduces the Bulk Synchronous Parallel (BSP) processing engine, along with a discussion of graph data processing. The Big Data mechanisms required for developing Big Data pipelines, its stages and the design process involved in building Big Data processing solutions are also explored.

The following primary topics are covered:
– Advanced Big Data Engineering Mechanisms
– Serialization and Compression Engines
– In-Memory Storage Devices
– In-Memory Data Grids and In-Memory Databases
– Read-Through, Read-Ahead, Write-Through and Write-Behind Integration Approaches
– Polyglot Persistence
– Explanation, Issues and Recommendations
– Realtime Big Data Processing
– Speed Consistency Volume (SCV)
– Event Stream Processing (ESP)
– Complex Event Processing (CEP)
– The SCV Principle
– General Realtime Big Data Processing and MapReduce
– Advanced MapReduce Algorithm Designs
– Bulk Synchronous Parallel (BSP) Processing Engine
– BSP vs. MapReduce
– BSP Synchronous Parallel
– Graph Data and Graph Data Processing using BSP (Supersteps)
– Big Data Pipelines, including Definition and Stages
– Big Data with Extract-Load-Transform (ELT)
– Big Data Solution Characteristics, Design Considerations and Design Process

Duration: 1 Day
