After I started researching, I happened to speak to a friend who was working with a leading analytics firm. I got an insider’s view of the Big Data industry. I was fascinated by the idea of using data analysis to extract business insights. To leverage my existing skills, I decided to learn more about career opportunities as a Big Data specialist. I was thrilled when I found that there was huge demand for these specialists, as most large organizations are spending a lot of money on Big Data.

Once I decided to become a Big Data specialist, I started looking for courses that were respected and recognized throughout the world.
