The processing of massive amount of data gives great insights into analysis for business. Many primary algorithms run over the data and gives information which can be used for business benefits and scientific research. Extraction and processing of large amount of data has become a primary concern in terms of time, processing power and cost. Map Reduce algorithm promises to address the above mentioned concerns. It makes computing of large sets of data considerably easy and flexible. The algorithm offers high scalability across many computing nodes. This session will introduce Map Reduce algorithm, followed by few variations of the same and also hands on example in Map Reduce using Apache Hadoop.
