Introduction to Oozie

Places or points of interest are specific locations that may be important to some people. Those locations are additionally associated with data that explains what is interesting or important about them.

Networking basics for IoT developers

These are typically locations where people come for entertainment, interaction, services, education, and other types of social activities. Examples of places include restaurants, museums, theaters, stadiums, hotels, landmarks, and so on. Many companies gather data about places and use this data in their applications.

In the telecommunications industry, probes are small packages of information sent from mobile devices. The majority of "smartphones" send probes regularly when the device is active and is running a geographical application (such as maps, navigation, traffic reports, and so on).

The probe frequency varies for different providers (from 5 seconds to 30 seconds). Probes are normally directed to phone carriers such as Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and/or phone manufacturers such as Apple, Nokia, HTC, and so on.


Different steps in validating location of customers
  • Select probes data for a specified time interval, as well as a location from the probes repository.
  • Extract probes strands. The idea here is to discover groups of probes from a particular device that belong to an individual who spent some time in one location. More precisely, a usual technique here includes classifying probes strands (such as pedestrians or traffic) and extracting "stay points" from pedestrian strands. 
  • Distribute the strands into geotiles. In practice, it is convenient to use several geotile systems in parallel with different tile sizes (geohash levels).
  • Geotiling is the partitioning of a space into a finite number of distinct shapes. This implementation uses equal-sized bounding boxes. A zoom level defines the size of the tiles. Typically, for the zoom level n, the number of tiles for the world is 2n.
  • Distribute the places into geotiles.
  • Calculate a location attendance index. The location attendance index captures the number of strands located in the proximity of a location, usually associated with a group of places. That enables you to estimate how many people attend places, how long people remain in places, and the distribution of these parameters over time.
  • Cluster stay points by geographical locations, and use clusters not associated with the currently known places for discovery of new place candidates.
What is the role of Oozie
Oozie does not require special programming for any of the Oozie actions. For example, any existing Pig script or any HQL script can be used as is inside of Oozie actions.

Four Tableau products a quick review and explanation

I want to share you what are the Products most popular.

Total four products. Read the details below.

Tableau desktop-(Business analytics anyone can use) - Tableau  Desktop  is  based  on  breakthrough technology  from  Stanford  University  that  lets  you drag & drop to analyze data. You can connect to  data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive dashboards with a few more.

We’ve done years of research to build a system that supports people’s natural  ability  to  think visually. Shift fluidly between views, following your natural train of thought. You’re not stuck in wizards or bogged down writing scripts. You just create beautiful, rich data visualizations.  It's so easy to use that any Excel user can learn it. Get more results for less effort. And it’s 10 –100x faster than existing solutions.

Tableau server
Tableau  Server  is  a  business  intelligence  application  that  provides  browser-based  analytics anyone can use. It’s a rapid-fire alternative to th…

The Sqoop in Hadoop story to process structural data

Why Sqoop you need while working on Hadoop-The Sqoop and its primary reason is to import data from structural data sources such as Oracle/DB2 into HDFS(also called Hadoop file system).
To our readers, I have collected a good video from Edureka which helps you to understand the functionality of Sqoop.

The comparison between Sqoop and Flume

The Sqoop the word came from SQL+Hadoop Sqoop word came from SQL+HADOOP=SQOOP. And Sqoop is a data transfer tool. The main use of Sqoop is to import and export the large amount of data from RDBMS to HDFS and vice versa. List of basic Sqoop commands Codegen- It helps to generate code to interact with database records.Create-hive-table- It helps to Import a table definition into a hiveEval- It helps to evaluateSQL statement and display the resultsExport-It helps to export an HDFS directory into a database tableHelp- It helps to list the available commandsImport- It helps to import a table from a database to HDFSImport-all-tables- It helps to import tables …

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.
