The Enterprise Big Data Analyst Syllabus provides a basis for certification of people involved with Big Data solutions and services.

The Big Data Framework provides a holistic and compressive approach for enterprises that aim to leverage the value of data in their organizations. The framework covers all the essential aspects of Big Data that are necessary to understand and analyze massive quantities of data.

The corresponding Enterprise Big Data Analyst (EBDA) qualification shows that candidates possess the skill to analyze Big Data and are able to understand key data analysis concepts and techniques. Moreover, an Enterprise Big Data Analyst is able to correctly interpret data and draw conclusions. The Enterprise Big Data Analyst qualification builds upon the first level of the Enterprise Big Data Framework qualification scheme (EBDP) in which fundamental knowledge and elementary concepts related to Big Data were covered. The EBDP certificate is therefore a pre-requisite to this certification.

The syllabus documents the learning outcomes related to the use of Big Data Framework and describes the scope of the requirements a candidate is expected to meet to demonstrate that these learning outcomes have been achieved at each qualification level.

It informs the design of the exams and provides accredited training organizations with a more detailed breakdown of what the exams will assess. Details on the exam structure and content are documented in the Enterprise Big Data Analyst examination design.
