In this series of hands-on tutorials, you’ll learn how to work with Big Data using Apache Hadoop and InfoSphere BigInsights 3.0, IBM’s Hadoop-based platform. In particular, you’ll learn the basics of working with the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and see how to administer your Hadoop-based environment using the BigInsights Web console.

After launching a sample MapReduce application, you’ll explore a more sophisticated scenario involving social media data. In doing so, you’ll learn how to use a spreadsheet-style interface to discover insights about the global coverage of a popular brand without writing any code. Finally, you’ll learn how to apply industry standard SQL to data managed by BigInsights through IBM’s Big SQL technology. Indeed, you’ll have a chance to create tables and execute complex queries over data in HDFS, including data derived from a relational data warehouse.
