Project Title: A Prototype Implementation of Recommendation Engine Using Big Data Analytics
Semester: 2 2015

Project Description: While Big Data is revolutionizing the IT world by solving large dataset problems with performance and scalability, software firms in many sectors are not ready to shift to a wholly Big Data project. The reason being the line of business involves atomic transactions that are well supported by relational databases. Hence, to leverage the benefits of both technologies, solutions that could drive the business are solved using big data analytics. Accordingly, an architecture is proposed in this paper which could handle Big Data content. This platform architecture discovers useful content easily with different data mining algorithms such as prediction algorithm and classification algorithms. Concluding these algorithms with reports will form a business intelligence suite that will improve the business value. In this project, the use case of online book store is developed. The users’ behavioral data is collected in the format of a text file that is mined and sorted with projects in the Big Data environment to provide recommendations to the user. These recommendations help the user find the right product and sales for the e-commerce platform.
