K. G. Srinivasa, Siddesh G. M., Srinidhi H.
In order to carry out data analytics, we need powerful and flexible computing software. However the software available for data analytics is often proprietary and can be expensive. This book reviews Apache tools, which are open source and easy to use. After providing an overview of the background of data analytics, covering the different types of analysis and the basics of using Hadoop as a tool, it focuses on different Hadoop ecosystem tools, like Apache Flume, Apache Spark, Apache Storm, Apache Hive, R, and Python, which can be used for different types of analysis. It then examines the different machine learning techniques that are useful for data analytics, and how to visualize data with different graphs and charts.
