Course Description

This 9-video Skillsoft Aspire course focuses solely on theory and involves no programming or query execution. Learners begin by examining what a data warehouse is, and how it differs from a relational database, important because Apache Hive is primarily a data warehouse, despite giving a SQL-like interface to query data. Hive facilitates work on very large data sets, stored as files in the Hadoop Distributed File System, and lets users perform operations in parallel on data in these files by effectively transforming Hive queries into MapReduce operations. Next, you will hear about types of data and operations which data warehouses and relational databases handle, before moving on to basic components of the Hadoop architecture.  Finally, the course discusses features of Hive making it popular among data analysts. The concluding exercise recalls differences between online transaction processing and online analytical processing systems, asking learners to identify Hadoop's three major components; list Hadoop offerings on three major cloud platforms (AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform); and list benefits of Hive for data analysts.
