The richest data store is only as good as your ability to search, sort, analyse, and present the data within it. The course begins with a brief history of data analytics and then proceed into discussions of data warehouses, data mining, business intelligence, machine learning, and other emerging AI techniques to make sense of big data.

You will learn how data is captured, cleansed, analysed, and presented on business intelligence dashboards that captivate and persuade an audience. “It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data,” Sherlock Holmes once said.

Whether you are investigating analytics as a potential career move or wish to better understand the terminology you encounter with increasing frequency in your professional circles, this online course will give you the foundation you are looking for.

This course includes 3 hours of instruction and a practice-based assessment, which will help you simulate real-world data analytics scenarios that are critical for success in today’s increasingly complex workplace.
