Accenture Sees Demand in Big Data Analytics

Accenture Plc., which has 40% of its global big data analytics team based in India, plans to tap the country’s high-end analytics market in anticipation of an increase in demand driven by the government’s Digital India programme. The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government’s Digital India initiative is aimed at delivering government services electronically in urban and rural areas, cutting out human intervention and closing the gap between digital haves and have-nots. It will act as an umbrella plan to integrate and synchronize all digital initiatives including the national broadband plan and the domestic manufacturing policy.

“Big data analytics will play a major role in the whole digital disruption that is happening in India today,” said Arnab Chakraborty, managing director for advanced analytics at Accenture Digital. “Mobility has leapfrogged in India and the whole ‘Make in India initiative’ has caught up strongly in the last six to eight months with the new leadership coming in.” Globally, Accenture is collaborating with many state governments and agencies in the areas of healthcare, education, electricity discussions around smart cities and combating crime. In the UK, for instance, Accenture is looking at identifying gang behaviour. In Singapore, it is studying crowd behaviour. In India, said Chakraborty, Accenture is working with a state government to improve childcare and safety, with state electricity boards on smart grids as well as with police forces in the states of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar to provide analytics to predict crime.

“We are trying to do facial recognition to understand the mood of the crowd... in the policing space in India, we are leveraging a lot of these things that we are doing in other countries,” said Michael Svilar, managing director and global lead for advanced analytics at Accenture Digital. He added that the company does “not want to get to the point where we are arresting people before they commit a crime, but the idea of using analytics is to predict likely behaviour that is behind crime that occurs”. According to Chakraborty, a lot of demand for high-end analytics is also coming from the telecom sector, which is looking at new revenue streams using analytics by becoming the provider of Internet of Things (IoT) services to other sectors, and resources including mining, oil and gas, utilities, which recently adopted analytics, but are now deploying sensors to harness the power of artificial intelligence.

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…
