Course description

Welcome to the Building Big Data Pipelines with SparkR & PowerBI & MongoDB course. In this course, we will be creating a big data analytics solution using big data technologies for R.

In our use case, we will be working with raw earthquake data and we will be applying big data processing techniques to extract transform, and load the data into usable datasets. Once we have processed and cleaned the data, we will use it as a data source for building predictive analytics and visualizations.

Power BI Desktop is a powerful data visualization tool that lets you build advanced queries, models, and reports. With Power BI Desktop, you can connect to multiple data sources and combine them into a data model. This data model lets you build visuals, and dashboards that you can share as reports with other people in your organization.

SparkR is an R package that provides a lightweight frontend to use Apache Spark from R. SparkR provides a distributed data frame implementation that supports operations like selection, filtering, aggregation, etc. (similar to R data frames, dplyr) but on large datasets. SparkR also supports distributed machine learning using MLlib.

MongoDB is a document-oriented NoSQL database, used for high volume data storage. It stores data in JSON-like format called documents and does not use row/column tables. The document model maps to the objects in your application code, making the data easy to work with.
