This course is designed to educate you on IBM BigInsights Big SQL. Initially you learn how to set up various BigInsights components to access Big SQL. Next, administration of Big SQL is covered. The student creates Hive tables, local, external, and partitioned, that can be accessed by Big SQL. Then, the same is done for HBase tables. The course winds up covering some query performance topics as well as defining complex structures in a table.
