Master of Science in Information Technology: Database Systems Technology
Register Today for the Data Base Management Systems for Big Data Webinar, Tuesday, April 16
"Big data" is the new term associated with data mining as it’s embraced by government and commercial corporations. Data mining refers to the process of sifting through large amounts of stored data for patterns, associations, changes, anomalies and significant structures that may prove beneficial to organizations.
Recognizing the impact of “big data” on various career fields, UMUC is hosting a Data Base Management Systems for Big Data Webinar, on Tuesday, April 16, from 7 to 8 p.m. Presented by Norman T. Kutemperor, founder and president/CEO of Scientel Information Technology, this event will
- Address today's big data demands in information management tasks for growing businesses, as well as scientific, government, and other organizations.
- Focus on NoSQL Data Base Management Systems (DBMS) that can handle structured/unstructured, transactional/non-transactional, indexed/non-indexed data types
During the webinar, you will also have the opportunity to chat with faculty and staff to get answers to your questions.
The Master of Science in Information Technology program provides a broad technical understanding of current and evolving technologies in the IT field with an emphasis on moving technology from the laboratory to the realm of business development through its program core courses.
