Making Big Data Work: Real-World Use Cases and Examples, Practical Code, Detailed Solutions Large-scale data analysis is now vitally important to virtually every business. Mobile and social technologies are generating massive datasets; distributed cloud computing offers the resources to store and analyze them; and professionals have radically new technologies at their command, including NoSQL databases. Until now, however, most books on aBig Dataa have been little more than business polemics or product catalogs. Data Just Right is different: Itas a completely practical and indispensable guide for every Big Data decision-maker, implementer, and strategist. Michael Manoochehri, a former Google engineer and data hacker, writes for professionals who need practical solutions that can be implemented with limited resources and time. Drawing on his extensive experience, he helps you focus on building applications, rather than infrastructure, because thatas where you can derive the most value. Manoochehri shows how to address each of todayas key Big Data use cases in a cost-effective way by combining technologies in hybrid solutions. Youall find expert approaches to managing massive datasets, visualizing data, building data pipelines and dashboards, choosing tools for statistical analysis, and more. Throughout, the author demonstrates techniques using many of todayas leading data analysis tools, including Hadoop, Hive, Shark, R, Apache Pig, Mahout, and Google BigQuery. Coverage includes Mastering the four guiding principles of Big Data successaand avoiding common pitfalls Emphasizing collaboration and avoiding problems with siloed data Hosting and sharing multi-terabyte datasets efficiently and economically aBuilding for infinitya to support rapid growth Developing a NoSQL Web app with Redis to collect crowd-sourced data Running distributed queries over massive datasets with Hadoop, Hive, and Shark Building a data dashboard with Google BigQuery Exploring large datasets with advanced visualization Implementing efficient pipelines for transforming immense amounts of data Automating complex processing with Apache Pig and the Cascading Java library Applying machine learning to classify, recommend, and predict incoming information Using R to perform statistical analysis on massive datasets Building highly efficient analytics workflows with Python and Pandas Establishing sensible purchasing strategies: when to build, buy, or outsource Previewing emerging trends and convergences in scalable data technologies and the evolving role of the Data Scientist... 173 Programming languages, measuring popularity, 159 Project ID, access to BigQuery API, 77a78 Project Voldemort, 40 Proof-of-concept projects build vs. buy problem, ...
