Re: Experience conundrum
Stratustician - thanks for the link to CloudU.  I'm an older but bright management consultant needing to "re-invent" myself.  I have strong statistical understanding and business process expertise but NO experience/background in recent big data tools, etc. (don't know R or Python, etc.).  I would greatly appreciate your thoughts on a curriculum path so that I could get a solid understanding of "big data" and how to utilize big data tools so that I can add value to companies seeking these expertise.

Re: Data Analysis and R
Further many R commands give little thought to memory management, therefore R can very quickly consume all available memory.

Re: Data Analysis and R
It is interesting to know about "R" programming. It will be very useful since it is an open source software which can will allow anyone to use and, importantly, to modify it.

Re: Coursera Data Science Specialization
You are absolutely right.  Big Data Analytics is a cross-disciplinary area based on foundations taken from Statistics, Computer Science, and Information Technology.  When you also begin to consider the data privacy issues involved you also begin to touch on legal topics as well.  I have taken a number online, as well as University graduate, data analytics courses and no one program totally encompasses the subject.  What I do find, however, is a lot of overlap of some of the same material such as basic statistics (for descriptive analytics) or machine learning algorithms (for predictive analytics).  The only thing that varies is the level of depth covered - with graduate and doctoral courses presenting advanced statistical or computer science techniques not normally addressed at the lower levels.

Re: Coursera Data Science Specialization
While the Johns Hopkins courses are heavier in big data itself, the Duke courses are more general and provide the analytics background needed to jump into big data.  I'm actually shocked at the number of people (present company excepted, of course) who think big data analytics do not use the same skills as plain data analytics.  The concerns for data quality, statistical significance, hypothesis testing, etc. apply to analysis of all data sets, regardless of size.  Training in the basics, and use of them in a more typical analytics process, can provide the experience needed to move into the big data world.

Fairy Tales from the Corporatocracy
The writer forgot to mention that Big Business defines the term "IT Pros" as male and under age 25.  Everyone else need not apply.
