About The Course
Big Data is a process to deliver decision-making insights. The process uses people and technology to quickly analyze large amounts of data of different types (traditional table structured data and unstructured data, such as pictures, video, email, transaction data, and social media interactions) from a variety of sources to produce a stream of actionable knowledge.
Organizations increasingly need to analyze information to make decisions for achieving greater efficiency, profits, and productivity. As relational databases have grown in size to satisfy these requirements, organizations have also looked at other technologies for storing vast amounts of information. These new systems are often referred to under the umbrella term “Big Data.”
Over the past 30 years, the amount of data available has increased tremendously. As a result of various forms of information technology progression, companies are able to collect data in many ways (POS data, supply chain data, web-traffic data etc.), which can be used to further customer engagement, segment markets, analyse consumer behavior and optimize product development. The role of data analysis is crucial, as it enables the disruption of previously traditional industries, and creates demand for various types of management processes based on data analytics. Often, analytics allow managers to ask the right questions and make critical business decisions, by interpreting data without necessarily being a subject matter expert.
This two day course is beneficial to anyone wanting to understand cutting edge methods of data analysis in various industries. Basic and advanced analytical methods will be discussed with real-life case studies, along with tutorials on how to make data analysis theory applicable to business scenarios. The course will focus on the following:
- Basic Excel analysis in developing KPI's (Key Performance Indicators), and Dashboards. Converting raw data into interpretable and actionable data which can be tracked and analyzed. Discussion will center on how to communicate these results.
- A/B Testing will be used to experimentally and statistically compare various business options. Case studies will be explored as to how this is accomplished in business.
- Segmentation and Clustering will be analyzed with the goal to understand how to decode hidden patterns within specific data sets. Discussion will center on various business decisions which can be formed as a result.
- Classification methodology will be discussed from the perspective of how businesses can use data to form experimental sampling, and define pathways based on predictive analysis.
