Confused between SAS certification and Hadoop course

sas

#1

Dear all,
I’m currently working in an international research organization as a data analyst and I know basic sas and macros to some extent. Now, I’m thinking to join SAS advanced analytics with certification. I am confused whether to do SAS certification or to do a course on Hadoop and big data because I heard there are huge opportunities in Hadoop.

So, I am totally confused whether I should sas analytics or hadoop course?

Please give me suggestion on this.

Regards,
Anil

Since you are completely new to analytics, I would recommend to go with SAS rather than Hadoop at this stage. You will find more jobs as of now on SAS. Also, given your background, you will find it easy to get a job in SAS based analytics.

Once you get a break into analytics, you can always add more certifications / specializations at a later stage.
