Data Processing and Analytics

Every time we type a text message, post a photo on social media, order a parcel or a taxi online we generate data businesses rely on. This module will teach learners how data can be harnessed, examined, analysed and put forward effective visualisations. You will learn about programming and statistical analysis so that they can process and analyse the data produced by your organisation. Moreover, you will consider how this data can be communicated to non-experts at your organisation.

You will then be able to make productive decisions about changing the way your organisation runs.
