I am a Technical Architect in Microsoft and iOS technologies. Since last year I have been thinking of moving to Big Data domain.
Just this month, I got enrolled myself in Edupristine Big Data and Hadoop course (http://www.edupristine.com/courses/big-data-hadoop-program/big-data-hadoop-course), to get myself comfortable with Hadoop and related technologies. This is my first jump into Big Data domain. This course finishes by March and then I can ask for work in Big Data domain in my company to get relevant industry experience.
Then as per my career aspirations, I want to get into Data Analytics. For that I will enrol in some Data Analytics course from top institutes (ISB, IIM). The fees of these courses is pretty high, but my understanding is I will get good return in future from this.
Do you think my approach is right? Please provide your valuable inputs.
