Anzo Bootcamp

Interested in learning about the analytic capabilities of Anzo Smart Data Lake® (ASDL) 4.0? Is your team currently performing an Anzo implementation and you’d like to learn what all the excitement is about? Or maybe you’d like to apply semantic technology at scale implemented in an end-to-end platform. If any of these apply, Anzo Bootcamp is the ideal place to get started. As the name implies, Anzo Bootcamp is an intensive 8-hour course that includes 4 instructor-led sessions, each accompanied by a hands-on lab. Courses will be delivered once a month via Webex.

Next Course Date/ Time: This course will be conducted online on Friday, October 6th, 8 am - 5 pm ET.

Course Cost: $1,500 per student

Course Overview: The course begins by arming students with foundational semantic technology concepts and why Anzo leverages them. The introductory module places particular emphasis on comparing and contrasting semantic technologies with relational databases through illustrative examples. With these concepts in place, participants perform standard data management activities leveraging each of the Anzo platform components, including:

  • Data Modeling (creating and editing ontologies using Anzo Ontology Editor)
  • Data Ingestion, Mapping and Transformation (ingesting data from relational databases and spreadsheets using ASDL Jobs)
  • Data Curation and Third Party Analytic Tool Integration (text analytics and data linking using Anzo Unstructured and the Open Data Protocol (Odata) standard to port data to analytics tools such as Spotfire, Tableau, and MS Excel)
  • Knowledge Discovery through exploration, visualization, and exploratory analytics of diverse harmonized data (performing analytics and creating rich visuals using Anzo on the Web)

Instructor-led modules and labs leverage a common, complex but intuitive dataset that illustrates the power of the graph model and how data is harmonized. Labs are provisioned in the cloud for each student and can be made available to participants after the course for continued work against lab exercises and the exploration of other features.

Course Package: The course package comprises a cloud instance for lab exercises and a Lab Guide. Extended time within the cloud provisioned lab environment is available. The Lab Guide offers step-by-step instructions to participants to perform hands-on lab exercises and reinforces key concepts on topics covered in the instructor-led modules.

Duration: 8 hours via Webex.

Prerequisites: This class is designed for beginner to intermediate audiences. Resources are available on our website for participants who wish to explore Anzo in advance. Participants are expected to have at least basic familiarity with data management workflow and analysis. Prior exposure to data analysis tools is helpful.
