Cloudera DataFlow: Flow Management with Apache NiFi

Cloudera DataFlow: Flow Management with Apache NiFi Certification Training Course Overview

This course provides the fundamental concepts and experience necessary to automate the ingress, flow, transformation, and egress of data using Apache NiFi.Participants will create and run NiFi dataflows for a variety of scenarios. Students will gain expertise using processors, connections, and process groups, and will use NiFi Expression Language to control the flow of data from various sources to multiple destinations. Participants will monitor dataflows, examine progress of data through a dataflow, and connect dataflows to external systems such as Kafka, HDFS, and HBase. 

Target Audience
