HP Vertica introduces Big Data Solutions Certification Program

15 Jan 2013

HP has revealed the first Big Data Solutions training and certification program for the HP Vertica Analytics Platform.

Available through HP ExpertOne, the computer giant says the program helps organisations “optimise Big Data by empowering IT executives to leverage structured, semistructured and unstructured data.”

“Our partners and customers are eager to complete a formal certification process that establishes their qualifications as Big Data experts,” says Byron Berk, manager, Services and Training, HP Vertica.

“By offering the new HP Vertica Big Data Solutions certification, we are empowering organisations to combine the power of the industry-leading HP Vertica Analytics platform with the advanced analytics skills of their IT professionals.”

According to a recent Gartner report, by 2015, Big Data demand will reach 4.4 million jobs globally but only one-third of those jobs will be filled.

HP says IT professionals must acquire the skills needed to connect, analyse and manage any type of information, in any location, using any interface, to help organisations fully realise the potential of Big Data.

This new training and certification program validates the skills and proficiency of HP Vertica system administrators, database analysts and application developers responsible for managing Big Data analytics.

To ensure the highest standard of Big Data education, HP says certification requires extensive training through coursework and real-world, on-the-job experience with the HP Vertica Analytics Platform prior to taking the exam.

“Our clients realise the potential of Big Data, but lack the necessary expertise to optimise their massive volumes of information,” says Behfar Jahanshahi, president and chief executive officer,Interworks, an IT services and business solutions provider.

“By partnering with HP to provide certification for the HP Vertica Analytics Platform—the premier data analytics platform—we enable our clients to capitalise on the enormous market potential of Big Data.”

The HP ExpertOne program offers certifications and training to over 500,000 IT professionals in Big Data, cloud, converged infrastructure, networking, operating systems, security servers, software, solutions and storage
