The Quick and Easy Way to Analyze Numpy Arrays

The quickest and easiest way to analyze NumPy arrays is by using the numpy.array() method. This method allows you to quickly and easily analyze the values contained in a numpy array. This method can also be used to find the sum, mean, standard deviation, max, min, and other useful analysis of the value contained within a numpy array. Sum You can find the sum of Numpy arrays using the np.sum() function.  For example:  import numpy as np  a = np.array([1,2,3,4,5])  b = np.array([6,7,8,9,10])  result = np.sum([a,b])  print(result)  # Output will be 55 Mean You can find the mean of a Numpy array using the np.mean() function. This function takes in an array as an argument and returns the mean of all the values in the array.  For example, the mean of a Numpy array of [1,2,3,4,5] would be  result = np.mean([1,2,3,4,5])  print(result)  #Output: 3.0 Standard Deviation To find the standard deviation of a Numpy array, you can use the NumPy std() function. This function takes in an array as a par

How Hadoop is Better for Legacy data

Here is an interview question on legacy data. You all know that a lot of data is available on legacy systems. You can use Hadoop to process the data for useful insights. 1. How should we be thinking about migrating data from legacy systems? Treat legacy data as you would any other complex data type.  HDFS acts as an active archive, enabling you to cost-effectively store data in any form for as long as you like and access it when you wish to explore the data. And with the latest generation of data wrangling and ETL tools, you can transform, enrich, and blend that legacy data with other, newer data types to gain a unique perspective on what’s happening across your business. 2. What are your thoughts on getting combined insights from the existing data warehouse and Hadoop? Typically one of the starter use cases for moving relational data off a warehouse and into Hadoop is active archiving.  This is the opportunity to take data that might have otherwise gone to the archive and keep it av
