Big Data Trainer

Vidéotron is a Canadian integrated telecommunications company active in cable television, interactive multimedia development, video on demand, cable telephony, wireless communication and Internet access services.

Business needs to train employees and projects managers on Big Data technologies.


Based on their needs, I prepared a customized training session on Big Data project management with an overview of Hadoop technologies for a group of managers and executives.

This customized Big Data training had to:

  • Introduce the characteristics and definition of Big Data by detailing its 5 V: Volume, Velocity, Variety, Veracity, and Value.
  • Cover An overview of Big Data technologies (Hadoop and Spark ecosystem)
  • Focus on the management aspect of Big Data project and return on investment.

By the end of the training session there was a workshop which was attended by  Systems Administrators team. This workshop aimed  to show the steps to set up a Cloudera / Hortonworks Hadoop Cluster with many hands-on exercices and examples.
