Big Data Education Package




The Big Data Education Package (BDEP) is a free, self-explanatory case study that teaches its participants how to efficiently process extremely large and complex data sets using Software AG products. The package has a ready-to-use scenario including a data volume of 50 million datasets, which is not only realistic, but comprehendible. It’s a playground where students can use industry leading tools for In-Memory Data Storage, Data Messaging and Complex Event Processing. Students using this package understand that data isn’t just a pile of numbers, but instead valuable information.
