Data Analytics and Methodologies

Course Description

Data analytics is transforming business processes at organizations large and small. As siloed data becomes more available through the deployments of environments such as data lakes and company-wide data warehousing, opportunities arise to apply analytics to improve efficiency, identify opportunity, and use predictions to take pre-emptive action. This course will introduce participants to the fundamentals of data analytics, big data frameworks, open source analytics tools, design methodologies, and visualization libraries through hands-on case studies.
