The Gold in Your Data! Ever cared to look for it?
All data has a story, so the refrain goes. Others add that ‘data is the new oil’.
Effective data analysis can offer insights to enable you to understand happenings (what happened and why) in your business, support accurate predictions, and suggest possible courses of future action for your business.
It is for that reason that we are announcing a new course, dubbed, Data and Business Analytics.
Across the world, businesses use insights from data to make decisions with a view to enhancing efficiency, improving performance, diversifying products and services, enriching customer experience, and gaining competitive advantage, among many others.
“Data is the new oil” is a common refrain in business cycles; it applies to all businesses, be they big or small. Developing data analysis capabilities can make a difference with respect to future growth. Modern organizations (public, non-governmental and private) need sound data analysis proficiency to support evidence-based decision-making and enable them to meet desired goals and remain competitive.
In this course, participants will learn about data analysis and its role in decision-making. They will understand different analytics methods and appreciate the tools needed for analysis. The course will focus on the use of outcomes for understanding the landscape, enabling extrapolation into the future, and assisting in future decision-making,
