Turning big data into tangible business value can be difficult even for highly skilled data scientists. Many data scientists and analysts do not have a deep understanding of Hadoop, so they struggle with solving their analytics problems in a distributed environment. Distributed algorithms are not always easy and intuitive, and there are many different approaches. Zoltan Prekopcsak outlines the best practices that make life easier, simplify the process, and implement results faster, helping you organize approaches and select the right approach for the task.
