The Enterprise Big Data Professional syllabus is to provide a basis for accreditation 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 Professional (EBDP®) qualification shows that candidates have a fundamental understanding of Big Data and are able to understand the structure and core elements of the Big Data Framework. The Enterprise Big Data Professional qualification is the first level of the Big Data Framework qualification scheme and covers fundamental knowledge and elementary concepts related to Big Data.

The syllabus documents the learning outcomes related to the use of Enterprise 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 also 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 Professional examination design.
