Big Data systems are computer systems that are based on similar design plans to all the others. We can therefore talk about the management of data in Big Data systems (Big Data Management) and using these data to extract knowledge relevant to the organization with Data Mining and Machine Learning algorithms (Big Data Analytics). Unlike traditional systems, however, there is not so much justification to separate the data exploitation management part, as there is no universal solution for storing data and exploiting them in a Big Data environment. Instead, the architectural solution depends on the specific case of use (exploitation) being considered. This Postgraduate programme provides an overview of Big Data ecosystem and considers both aspects in depth: management (Big Data Management) and exploitation of data (Big Data Analytics), while providing applicability and a business vision within this system.
