Big Data is a collection of large and complex data sets, that makes it tedious to capture, store, process, retrieve and analyze. It is difficult to process big data using standard database management tools or traditional data processing applications. Optimizing big data requires a robust infrastructure and rather recent technologies. Hadoop is very good when it comes to analyzing Big Data. This thesis demonstrates the use of the Hadoop framework to perform analytics on amazon product metadata. The data set chosen to perform analytics has Amazon product metadata and review information about different products in electronics. For each product, the information available is product/productId, product/title, product/price, review/userId, review/profileName, review/helpfulness, review/score, review/time, review/summary, review/text. Based on the information available, I have done several analytics like finding high rated products, low rated products, active customers and others.
