    Big Data or Data Analytic or Predictive Analytics are informally used together but they are not same. They definitely overlap each other and closely inter-related.

    There are many offline & online courses available in india for Big Data, Data Analytics and Predictive Analytics.

    As mentioned earlier, they all are inter-related and if you study one, you will always touch others.
    Therefore it is important to know what exactly you are looking for and choose courses appropriate for you.

    For professional with programming back ground, Big Data courses are more suitable as they also include R programming, SAS language, Hadoop etc. there could be some variation but Big data courses more or less will have these things depending upon the nature of the course. When I say nature of the course, I basically mean the size or length of the course.

    Courses which are smaller in hours will tend to have only limited topics. A short term big data certification may have all or some of the following topics;
    • R Programming
    • SAS learning
    • Hadoop training
    • Map-Reduce Basics and Map-Reduce Types and Formats
    • PIG
    • HIVE
    A long term course like diploma or PG diploma will have more topics covering data predictive modeling also like
    • Data science
    • Quantitative management techniques
    • Analytics
    • Data mining for business intelligence
    But if you are professional with Business Analystbackground, you might be more interested in business side of it. In fact, predictive modeling is more relevant for you. Therefore you should target data analytics or predictive modeling courses which focus more on business side and their principals. There is a huge demand for these professionals.

    Common term which is used for predictive analytics or data analytics courses is Business Analytics.
    As mentioned earlier, some of the subject will overlap and students applying for data analytics courses will go through some of the subject mentioned above. Other than those, Business analytics course also have;
    • Statistical Analysis
    • Data Management
    • Predictive analytics
    • Forecasting techniques
    • Analytics
    • Advanced Statistical Modeling
    • Data Mining
    • Data collection
    • Data visualization
    • Optimization Modeling
    Some colleges or institutions may offer additional subjects also.
    So choose a appropriate course based on your requirement
    Some of the most prominent name offering Business Analytics courses in India are;
