Overview Overview

As more and more software and IT projects migrate from local processing and data management to distributed processing and big data storage, Project Managers are finding the need to upgrade their knowledge and skills to grasp the concepts and practices relevant to Big Data projects and opportunities.

This course introduces Project Managers to the most popular Big Data processing framework: Hadoop.  

In this instructor-led training, participants will learn the core components of the Hadoop ecosystem and how these technologies can used to solve large-scale problems. In learning these foundations, participants will also improve their ability to communicate with the developers and implementers of these systems as well as the data scientists and analysts that many IT projects involve.


  • Project Managers wishing to implement Hadoop into their existing development or IT infrastructure
  • Project Managers needing to communicate with cross-functional teams that include big data engineers, data scientists and business analysts

Format of the course

  • Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and heavy hands-on practice
