Modern organizations are experiencing a data revolution. Traditional intuitive decision making is replaced by visualizing and interpreting the vast amount of digitalized information. It is the era of real-time analysis of data that is big, unstructured and dynamic. Managers of modern organizations need a sound understanding of the potential of data to spot new business opportunities. Making the most of your data is the main source of competitive advantage. In this course we will demystify "big data" and teach you how to translate the mass of data into sound business decisions. This workshop will train participants in the core concepts of big data analysis. The workshop will focus on the intuitive logic behind ways of grouping objects, detecting patterns and on visualizing and interpreting the results. No math. Intuitive understanding and tools.
