The Big Data Framework is an independent body of knowledge for the development and advancement of Big Data practices and certification. Enterprise Big Data Framework aims to inspire, promote and develop excellence in Big Data practices, analysis and applications across the globe.

In this Q&A the following questions will be answered:

  • What is the Enterprise Big Data Framework?
  • Who can use the Enterprise Big Data Framework?
  • How can you get started with Big Data?

What is the Enterprise Big Data Framework?

The Big Data framework was created as a vendor-neutral approach to Big Data. We found that a lot of enterprise organizations were really struggling with how do I get started with Big Data in my organization, so we defined six core capabilities in the framework so that every organization knows where to get started with Big Data and to start their Big Data journey.

Who can use the Enterprise Big Data Framework?

Well, the Big Data Framework is actually developed for a lot of different people, because it aims to get everybody educated that wants to get started with Big Data. What we have tried to do in the framework is designed a number of certifications for different specializations. So, there is an entry-level for people who don’t have any experience with Big Data at all, but you can also move up to very specialistic roles like for instance a Big Data engineer or a Big Data Scientist.

How can you get started with Big Data?

What we really try to do is to make the Big Data Framework available as an open-source approach, so this means that you can get started tomorrow, you can download all of the books which are available for free on the website, bigdataframework.org. Here, you can get started with educating yourself, which is probably one of the most important aspects of anyone working in Big Data. It is all about knowledge and skills.
