Big data Analytics

The definition of big data holds the key to understanding big data analytics. According to the Gartner IT Glossary, Big Data is high-volume, high-velocity and high-variety information assets that demand cost effective, innovative forms of information processing for enhanced insight and decision making.

- Volume refers to the amount of data. Many factors are contributing to high volume: sensor and machine-generated data, networks, social media, and much more. Enterprises are awash with terabytes and, increasingly, petabytes of big data.

- Variety refers to the number of types of data. Big data extends beyond structured data such as numbers, dates and strings to include unstructured data such as text, video, audio, click streams, 3D data and log files.

-Velocity refers to the speed of data processing. The pace at which data streams in from sources such as mobile devices, clickstreams, high-frequency stock trading, and machine-to-machine processes is massive and continuously fast moving.

Re: Master of Business Analytics - Deakin University, Australia (online or onCampus)
Don't forget Bond University on the Gold Coast. They offer a digital business degree that covers all of the necessary topics and drill down into data science, big data, programming, systems design, cyber security, etc. Plus the course is offered over 3 semesters per year so the course is over in 2 years. They have strong links with Australian businesses and almost all grads land a great job straight from Uni...there is a lot of demand for data scientists in QLD at the moment and most jobs pay > $150k pa.

Re: Master of Business Analytics - Deakin University, Australia (online or onCampus)
I am looking to do Masters of Business Analytics. I am just concerned with the quality of programs in Australia and the best universities to do with. As far as I know there are only few in Australia that provides this degree, namely Deaking, Melbourne Business School, Victoria Uni, RMIT. I am just not sure on how to go ahead with either of them as there is no performance information, existing alumini you could speak to, rankings, etc that usually helps a student to make a decision. 

 

could you please help.
