Cloudera Workshop for Vodafone

2018

We prepared for Vodafone a three-day practical training course about big data work on the Cloudera platform.

Certified Cloudera Partner

We are the first Cloudera partner in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, we have Cloudera certifications for implementation and administration of their environment and we have successfully passed their SEBC (service enablement bootcamp). We prepared the workshop for the Vodafone team that takes care of the operations and processing of their data.

The goal was to pass on practical experiences and allow participants to try various workloads in the Cloudera environment.

Focused on practice

We designed the workshop as 30 % theory and 70 % hands-on, where we pushed for active participation. Each participant had their copy of a similar solution in the cloud, which was deployed in production. We discussed the installation, data transfer options, how to best prepare data for end-to-end solutions, and what to do if problems occur. We also mentioned our best practices – tips for working with the Cloudera platform.

“Due to the processing of huge amounts of data for advanced analysis of mobile network performance, at Vodafone, we had to move from relatively small relational databases to Big Data solutions and the choice fell on Hadoop distribution from Cloudera. We needed to take an intensive course as soon as possible, which would acquaint us with the Hadoop ecosystem both theoretically and, above all, practically. That's why we turned to Gauss, who met our expectations 100 percent,” mentions Michal Štursa, chapter lead big data at Vodafone.

A tailored workshop

We have completed installations in the most demanding environments and we were happy to share our know-how at the training. Part of the workshop was also working with git, through which we provide both materials and exercises. Everything was available to participants even after the workshop, so they could repeat some processes in their own environment.

"The interaction with the participants was great. On the very first day, we realized that Vodafone data teams are facing challenging tasks in real operations. Together we tried to discover the best ways to solve tasks and practically show what awaits them in the near future," explains Johnson Darkwah, who led the workshop.

The whole workshop lasted three days and we provided everything from the training itself, through the premises to refreshments.
