  • Database Admin: 

Database administrator ensures that the data has been collected, stored and released is correct and who can access what.

  • System admin: 

As a system administrator, you will be responsible for managing and monitoring a network of computers, hardware and software and related infrastructure. You will assist project teams in researching, planning and developing technical strategies. 

In small companies, one person may be responsible for Network, System and Database administration. However, in larger companies, there are a group of employees performing these functions.

Professionals in CS and IT field encourage to invest in industry standard certifications such as OCA (Oracle Certified Associate), MTA (Microsoft Technology Associate), MCSE (Microsoft Certified Solution Expert), CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) and more. By passing certification exams, you will have your skills validated. When you apply for a job, there will be several hundred candidates like you but you will stand out because you have an industry standard certificate. The certifications will show that you have worked hard to go beyond the minimum. 

So, challenge yourself and stand out from the crowd.

Introduction to Data Science: What is Big Data?

What Is Big Data First, we will discuss how big data is evaluated step by step process. Evolution of Data How the data evolved and how the big data came. Nowadays the data have been evaluated from different sources like the evolution of technology, IoT(Internet of Things), Social media like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, many other sources the data has been created day by day. 1. Evolution of  Technology We will see how technology is evolved as we see from the below image at the earlier stages we have the landline phone but now we have smartphones of Android, IoS, and HongMeng Os (Huawei)  that are making our life smarter as well as our phone smarter. Apart from that, we have heavily built a desktop for processing of Mb's data that we were using a floppy you will remember how much data it can be stored after that hard disk has been introduced which can stored data in Tb. Now due to modern technology, we can be stored data in the cloud as well. Similarly, nowadays we noticed …

How Big Data Analytics Can Help You Improve And Grow Your Business?

Big Data Analytics There are certain problems that can only solve through big data. Here we discuss the field big data as "Big Data Analytics". The big data came into the picture we never thought how commodity hardware is used to store and manage the data which is reliable and feasible as compared to the costly sources. Now let us discuss a few examples of how big data analytics is useful nowadays. When you go to websites like Amazon, Youtube, Netflix, and any other websites actually they will provide some field in which recommend some product, videos, movies, and some songs for you. What do you think about how they do it? Basically what kind of data they generated on these kind websites. They make sure to analyze properly. The data generated is not small it is actually big data. Now they analysis these big data they make sure whatever you like and whatever you are the preferences accordingly they generate recommendations for you. If you go to Youtube you have noticed it kn…

AI Vs Machine Learning Vs Deep Learning

AI Vs Machine Learning Vs Deep Learning Artificial intelligence, deep learning and machine learning are often confused with each other. These terms are used interchangeably but do they do not refer to the same thing. These terms are closely related to each other which makes it difficult for beginners to spot differences among them. The reason I think of this puzzle is that AI is classified in many ways. It is divided into subfields with respect to the tasks AI is used for such as computer vision, natural language processing, forecasting and prediction, with respect to the type of approach used for learning and the type of data used. Subfields of Artificial Intelligence have much in common which makes it difficult for beginners to clearly differentiate among these areas. Different approaches of AI can process similar data to perform similar tasks. For example Deep learning and SVM both could be used for object detection task. Both have pros and cons. In some cases Machine Learning is …
