The Analytics Virtual Lab


Real world experience means that one gets to work on real machinery in a real production environment. Quite often the experience of working in a real environment is far different from that of a simulated one. Obviously, the real environment is valued more by the Big Data world as opposed to the simulated one. To make that possible, we have come up with cloud based learning in a virtual lab setup which comes pre-installed with the necessary technology stack, including Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark, Kafka, Python, R and other related technologies.
Practicing will not require long, arduous installations anymore. Just enroll for the program and start learning any of the many analytical or big data tools available to you anytime, anywhere on the cloud.
  • Connect from anywhere, anytime

  • Agnostic of machine configuration

  • Real world production experience

  • No installation or compatibility issues

  • Centralized datasets
