Do you give priority to specific vendor?
Answer: No, we don’t give priority to any vendor. It varies based on many factors.
- Like if you wanted to get certified in both Hadoop and Spark then go for Cloudera Hadoop and Spark certification. And you have to have knowledge how to use Cloudera platform.
- If you are working on MapR platform then you can go for MapR Spark certification. Even other advantage is that MapR Spark certification is not as lengthy as Databricks Spark certification. You can prepare for MapR Spark certification in quite less time. You can see pros and cons that Databricks is more involved with the Spark and really tough one among the all Spark certification.
- However, while writing this book, we have seen most of the vendors are upgrading their certifications to accommodate Spark 2.x
