This course presents a software planning and quality perspective that guides the selection of tools and application of techniques needed for the successful completion of software development projects. A successful software project must manage many different, yet integrated activities. These activities include software development lifecycle tasks such as requirements gathering, software design, and code implementation. Many other activities also need to be planned and managed, such as project scope, schedule, and cost. In any successful software project, when issues arise (e.g. the requirements change, a defect in the software is discovered, scheduled activities do not go as planned, etc.) they need to be prioritized and appropriately addressed. To minimize the impact of software quality issues, software testing and quality improvement activities need to be planned, executed and coordinated. The purpose of this course is to learn the foundational concepts and practices needed to produce software that is completed on time, within budget, and with the necessary scope and quality required. While software development activities are covered in other courses, this course will focus more on the software planning and testing activities. Project management topics covered include: integration management, scope management, time management, cost management, and quality management from a software planning perspective. Software testing and quality topics covered include: testing terms and concepts, lower-level testing (e.g. unit and integration testing), higher-level testing (e.g. system and acceptance testing), and test automation. Agile Project and Product Management using Scrum will be introduced as an approach for directing these activities and laying the foundation for continuous process improvement and quality assurance.

This course covers the technical concepts of managing vast amount of unstructured, semi-structured and structured data, collectively called "Big Data". Due to the sheer volume of Big Data, traditional approaches to managing databases does not work well for Big data and does not perform as expected. A distributed architecture for both the file system and the operating system is needed. Some of the techniques used in managing Big Data have the origins in the research and the developments that have been going on for decades in the area of parallel processing and distributed database management systems. This course focuses on why big data sets must be distributed and the issues that distribution introduces. The basic concepts on which distributed data sets are handled are discussed first. Once a foundation is defined, software tools that we use to work with big data sets are studied to provide an in-depth analysis of the concepts introduced. Specifically, we will study the issues distributed data design, data fragmentation, data replication, distributed fault tolerance/recovery. We will also study the use of Hadoop, Pig, Hive, and HBase in dealing big data sets and use real life examples of how these open source software are used. Prerequisites:(SEIS 601 or SEIS 603) and SEIS 630. May take concurrently with SEIS 736.

This course covers the technical concepts of managing vast amount of unstructured, semi-structured and structured data, collectively called "Big Data". Due to the sheer volume of Big Data, traditional approaches to managing databases does not work well for Big data and does not perform as expected. A distributed architecture for both the file system and the operating system is needed. Some of the techniques used in managing Big Data have the origins in the research and the developments that have been going on for decades in the area of parallel processing and distributed database management systems. This course focuses on why big data sets must be distributed and the issues that distribution introduces. The basic concepts on which distributed data sets are handled are discussed first. Once a foundation is defined, software tools that we use to work with big data sets are studied to provide an in-depth analysis of the concepts introduced. Specifically, we will study the issues distributed data design, data fragmentation, data replication, distributed fault tolerance/recovery. We will also study the use of Hadoop, Pig, Hive, and HBase in dealing big data sets and use real life examples of how these open source software are used. Prerequisites:(SEIS 601 or SEIS 603) and SEIS 630. May take concurrently with SEIS 736.

As billions of devices are getting connected, the Internet of Things (IoT) has become one of the most talked about technology trends.But IoT is not really about technology and connected devices.At its core it is about business outcomes and people; it is about new ways of doing business, talent and change management; it is about migration to open technologies and open structures based on co-development and ecosystems and partnerships; it is an evolution and guiding philosophy.This course is intended to teach data science and analytics students the value of IoT and how to think of integrating data science concepts (big data, machine learning, visualization) as the key parts of driving human changein an increasingly data- 3driven world.The course is designed to guide emerging data scientists into understanding business value and how to inject data science at the core from data collection of IoT devices to business models delivering the value of data insights.The emerging gap of operational technology (OT) professionals forces the (IT) professionals to think past technology and tools to outcome-based results. This IoT introduction course is targeted at individuals who want to understand what theInternet of Things is, how it evolves from the Internet, what the core technologies and systems are and how it is implemented.
