About This Course
Many data systems exist today. The primary objective of the course is to have a conceptual grid of the different data systems by deepening the main standards.
A multidisciplinary introduction allows learners to have a strategic vision of the future of information systems around the concepts of "mobiquity and BIG DATA". Then, we present the fundamental concepts of databases and BIG DATA with their paradigms and properties in support: TIPS / ACID, RICE, WHAT / BASE and Google CABS. The Top Down and Bottom Up approaches to data integration then make it possible to explore the different paradigms of data systems.
This course is a fundamental prerequisite for all computer science students (Bachelor and master) wishing to do a Master in computer science in the Data economy like the MBDS (Mobiquity, Big Data and Systems Integration) from University Côte d’Azur (formerly University of Nice Sophia Antipolis). It is also intended for IT professionals who want a clarification of the concepts of databases and Big Data.
This is a weekly course over 7 weeks. Each week, 4 to 9 short video sequences will be offered to participants. These sequences will be accompanied by questions and practical work, as well as discussion forums. MCQs will evaluate the knowledge at the end of each week. The teaching team will speak once a week to answer the most frequent questions of the forum through an online conference.
The weekly MCQs and the peer-reviewed practical work will be used to successfully issue the follow-up certificate.
It's the first academic course of the master MBDS.
