StackRoute announces programs in Data Engineering to meet the Enterprise Big Data requirement of the industry

-  Offers two new programs targeting Enterprise Big Data Engineering skill set

-  Both the programs build a strong foundation on Big Data, Scala Programming and Apache Spark followed by the respective specialization of Spark ML or Databricks

New Delhi, September 23, 2020: StackRouteTM, an NIIT venture announced the launch of programs in Data Engineering. Titled, 'Enterprise Big Data Engineering & Machine Learning using Spark' and 'Enterprise Big Data Engineering using Databricks & Delta Lakes - these programs help enterprises to equip their workforce having prior experience in data projects, with steps and tools of designing and solving business challenges that fall in the category of Data Analysis and Big Data using modern Data Architectures like delta architecture. 

While the Enterprise Big Data Engineering & Machine Learning using Spark program will empower professionals with the skills to scale Data Science and Machine Learning task on Big Datasets using Apache Spark, the Enterprise Big Data engineering using Databricks & Delta Lakes program will establish strong foundations in key big data pipeline using Azure Databricks - an Apache Spark based analytics platform optimized on Microsoft Azure Cloud. 

These programs seek to establish strong foundations in key software engineering principles, methodologies, and to impart skills in building scalable enterprise data pipeline for analysis using Apache Spark- a cluster computing system well suited for large scale machine learning tasks

The programs will be delivered on weekends via Live Practitioner-led sessions with remote Cloud based lab facility. The average duration of each program is 8-9 weekends with 150 hours of learning effort. 

The Enterprise Big Data Engineering & Machine Learning using Spark program covers three most popular ML algorithms, and indispensable to those building ML based analytical solutions - Decision Trees, Clustering and Regression. 

The Enterprise Big Data Engineering using Databricks & Delta Lakes program covers Data Lakes, which is a required skill in the industry today and gaining popularity, yet to cover in many Apache Spark courses. The program covers integration with Delta Lake - an open source implementation of Data Lake- using Apache Spark. 

According to NASSCOM, the Indian Analytics industry will reach $16 billion mark by 2025. The growth is already evident and has with more than 90,000 analytics professionals in the market at present.
