Certification in Big Data vs. R for new Entrant Into Analytics



Hi Kunal, I follow your posts and find them very informative. I want to enter the field of analytics however I dont have a background in Maths. Can you suggest me a career path?I have already completed the Bigdata & hadoop training and currently learning python via courseera.Should I focus on hadoop &Bigdata and go for the cloudera certification or should I learn sas or R?



I would focus more on techniques rather than tools. Python is good for now. Among the two options, I would recommend Cloudera certification.



Thanks for your response. Yes want to go for cloudera certification. I hope that helps me to enter the field of analytics.
