Big data management
The world is facing an information overload thanks to the profusion of data from a diverse and growing range of new and evolving sources, including social media, mobile devices, cameras, and many more.
While the technological capacity to store information doubles every 3 years, 2.5 quintillion bytes of data were created each day in 2012, producing collections of data sets that are becoming too large and complex for the capabilities of existing database management tools and traditional data processing applications.
You’ll learn to manage the challenges of big data and exploit its potential—capture, curation, storage, search, sharing, transfer, analysis, and visualisation.
Analysis of big data can lead to key organisational insights such as identifying business trends, determining research quality, which in turn can be applied to diverse areas and projects such as delivering preventative healthcare, or linking legal citations and combating crime.
Cloud computing allows computing tasks—running applications, storing data, and so on—to be carried out remotely.
The opportunity to exploit the potential economies of scale, implied efficiencies and massive savings available through such a system has given great impetus to cloud computing over recent years.
You’ll gain insights into various cloud computing systems, including Google AppEngine, Microsoft Azure, Yahoo’s Hadoop, Google’s MapReduce, Amazon EC2 and S3, as well as many more systems.
With mobile technologies facilitating advances in communications, finance, and information exchange and sharing, we’ve only just begun to explore the potential for this technology.
As a platform for creating key applications for industry, government and commerce, the demand for skill sets in mobile computing systems is sure to grow in the future, especially given the growth in internet and web-based systems.
You’ll develop skills in the key areas in mobile computing including mobile software, mobile hardware, and mobile communication and security.
At all levels, critical infrastructure relies upon information and database systems to store, process and exchange information.
Organisations with very diverse functions collect, process and store vast amounts of confidential information about employees, customers, products, research and more, on computers and database systems.
Consequently, the security of this data, whether in banks or transport networks, telecommunications or utilities has become vitally important.
You’ll develop technical and management skills to enhance security in computer systems. This is applicable to organisations with very diverse functions, such as governments, the military, corporations, hospitals, financial institutions, universities or private businesses.
Software architects oversee the high-level design and structure of the ICT systems that underpin the infrastructure of an organisation.
With the accelerating growth and evolution in the technologies available for developing software applications and systems, greater efficiency and flexibility will be highly sought in organisations of all sizes.
You’ll develop an enhanced understanding of the high-level design and structure of the ICT systems that underpin the infrastructure of an organisation. You’ll gain expertise in advanced software development techniques and technologies, exploiting modern development environments and languages, and balancing a range of usability issues when designing solutions.
Web systems and search technology
The explosion of web resources and internet applications presents us with unprecedented choice and opportunity; however searching and deciding on what to use, choose or lose is becoming trickier.
More than ever web users need more sophisticated search technologies and effective and efficient tools for locating, managing and exchanging all sorts of information, including documents, pictures, and other structured and unstructured data.
You’ll understand the design and implementation of search engines, search engine optimisation, structured and unstructured information management and web services.
