Data and Analytics Training

Accelerate Your Big Data Skills

Cisco is introducing a Data and Analytics training portfolio focusing on integrated data management and virtualization.

These new courses provide powerful skills and extensive hands-on learning, including:

  • Integrated infrastructure for Big Data and analytics will allow participants to design scalable, reliable, and intelligent data center solutions using Cisco UCS integrated infrastructure for Big Data and analytics
  • Data virtualization will allow participants to gain practical, hands-on, skills with the Cisco Data Virtualization Platform, including the Cisco Information Server and Business Directory.

Data and Analytics training provide powerful skills for data professionals to connect data, processes and experiences and extract actionable insights.

  • Most Big Data initiatives have infrastructure implications; enterprises need to make deliberate infrastructure decisions that take into account-specific workload requirements. Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data and Analytics offers optimized comprehensive solution for enterprise-class deployments.
  • Data virtualization training provides an agile data integration method that simplifies information access. This streamlined approach lets businesses derive greater value from growing volumes of data faster, significantly accelerating IT responsiveness without additional resources.
