The goal of this book is to provide a smooth transition from traditional data analytics to recent algorithms for massive data analysis including real-time analytics. It focuses on concepts, principles, and techniques applicable to any technology environment and industry and establishes a baseline that can be enhanced further by additional real-world experience. This book aims to be a ready reckoner to either a novice or a professional working in the field. A whole section is devoted to classical supervised methods of analysis like regression, times series, Bayesian analysis, etc. Recent topics in clustering and data streams analysis is covered later. Emphasis is on newer tools like MapReduce and NoSQL. A comprehensive discussion of real-time analytics is included.
