Training

We provide comprehensive Big Data training for data scientists, developers, system architects and managers. Our instructors teach big data analytic technologies using in-depth examples and hands-on exercises. We customize our training to our clients’ needs and to all levels of students’ experience; from the beginners to the advanced students. Our clients can select training modules from the “menu” of classes to design their own curriculum.

“Over the past year Centric Consulting has undertaken a concerted effort to expand our Big Data delivery capability. After surveying the market, we realized it was necessary to develop these capabilities internally rather than rely solely on sparse new hires. In a four-day session Mike Covert and Victoria Loewengart of Analytics Inside trained Centric data architects and application developers. It was immediately evident that AI has a comprehensive understanding of the underlying platform. Training topics were guided by Analytics Inside’s Big Data Maturity Model which Centric has subsequently leveraged to grow our team. The training itself was engaging, interspersed with relevant anecdotes and classroom challenges. They did not assume attendees had a foundation in Hadoop, and instead ramped them up from Java basics into more complex topics such as MapReduce, YARN, text analytics and machine learning. Centric received exceptional value from this training. We look forward to working with Analytics Inside in the future as we progress in our Big Data journey.”
