SMAC - $1 Trillion Industry By 2020

At least 5-6 lakh people will soon be employed in the space, according to Ganesh Natarajan, CEO, Zensar Technologies

The size of the overall SMAC industry globally will be close to $1 trillion by 2020. From the Indian software exporters’ point of view, it will be $15 billion within the next three years, and over $ 225 Billion by 2020.
Translating that to people it would mean at least 5-6 lakh people employed in this space by that time.
Zensar Technologies has a Digital Enterprise group focusing on digital transformation solutions, where we work with clients in the US, Europe and India to understand what applications can be taken to the Cloud, which is almost 30 per cent of the SMAC opportunity.
The second area is Social Listening involving analysis of information on the social media. Zensar provides a service that will enable our clients, especially those who are interacting with consumers directly and often, like insurance companies, retail banks, etc. on how to improve their marketing initiatives or service quality etc. This service involves a rich interweave of social media monitoring and applying analytics to it to help the client make informed decisions and very often in real time. A lot of marketing analytics is based on what is happening in the social media today. Increasing number of users are the Gen Y, and being digital natives their access to social media and their use of it for any transaction is immense, thus churning out a lot of data all the time. Big Data is about combining intelligence from your own measuring systems with what the world is talking about you.

The best 5 differences of AWS EMR and Hadoop

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…

Top 20 ultimate ETL Questions really good for interviews

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…

5 Things About AWS EC2 You Need to Focus!

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 minimal friction.

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…
