The latest benchmark study by EKN, The Future of Retail Analytics, is a survey of senior retail executives reveals that in a time of unprecedented change in the retail environment, brick-and-mortar retail stores must look to omni-channel customer engagement to gain deeper insight into consumers. The study also includes an in-depth look at how best-in-class retailers use analytics, as well as the business analytics software vendor landscape. In INDIA walmart is expanding its business. So, other companies may follow the same way. So there will be a great demand for Retail analytics skill. Download here
With Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) you can analyze and process vast amounts of data. It does this by distributing the computational work across a cluster of virtual servers running in the Amazon cloud. The cluster is managed using an open-source framework called Hadoop.
Amazon EMR has made enhancements to Hadoop and other open-source applications to work seamlessly with AWS. For example, Hadoop clusters running on Amazon EMR use EC2 instances as virtual Linux servers for the master and slave nodes, Amazon S3 for bulk storage of input and output data, and CloudWatch to monitor cluster performance and raise alarms.
You can also move data into and out of DynamoDB using Amazon EMR and Hive. All of this is orchestrated by Amazon EMR control software that launches and manages the Hadoop cluster. This process is called an Amazon EMR cluster.
What does Hadoop do...
Hadoop uses a distributed processing architecture called MapReduce in which a task is mapped to a set of servers for proce…
How to print/display the first line of a file? there are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command. $> head -1 file. Txt no prize in guessing that if you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file. another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this. $> sed '2,$ d' file. Txt how does the above command work? The 'd' parameter basically tells [sed] to delete all the records from display from line 2 to last line of the file (last line is represented by $ symbol). Of course it does not actually delete those lines from the file, it just does not display those lines in standard output screen. So you only see the remaining line which is the 1st line. how to print/display the last line of a file? the easiest way is to use the [tail] command. $> tail -1 file. Txt if you want to do it using…
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon
EC2) - is a web service
that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is
designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers. Amazon EC2’s
simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with
The basic functions of EC2... It provides you with complete control of your
computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment.Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to
minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your
computing requirements change.Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by
allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2
provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and
isolate themselves from common failure scenarios. Key Points for Interviews: EC2 is the basic fundamental block around which the AWS are structured.EC2 provides remote ope…
