Overview

As the size and complexity of data continues to evolve, data users ability to drive actionable insight from data is quickly becoming not only a differentiator but a table stake for the world’s most successful companies. While historically a skillset possessed only by those with degrees in computer science, probability / statistics and mathematics, the advancement of end user analytics toolkits such as Python had dramatically brought down the barrier of entry.

We will enable you to derive deep insights from data to drive actionable decisions within your business to unlock the full potential of enterprise scale data. In this course, you will work through a series of real live business cases that utilizes a number of machine learning methodologies to uncover hidden value and insights within a company’s data.

Audience:

Data users such as Project Managers, Accountants, Business Analysts, managers or any role that needs to understand how to make dependable data guided decisions
