Data Analytics Is the Future of Everything

The world has now turned into a digital workspace. Online activity and real-world sensors are generating torrents of data about everything from weather to crime to our buying habits. Increasing computer power and new analytical techniques promise to turn masses of raw data into actionable intelligence—and thereby transform a variety of industries and propel us to a data-driven economy. According to analysts, the Data Analytics market will be almost $50B by 2019. Coupled with the estimation that by 2018 there will nearly 1.2 million open data jobs with no one to fill them*, it is clear that understanding and communicating with data will be critical for impact. The skills needed to be a Business Analyst, Data Analyst, or Data Scientist are all about to be in real demand, and our trainings with experience Data Science Practitioners will help you get head start! (*International Data Corporation).

WHY NOW?

As companies begin to realize that they have no capacity to comprehensively gather, interpret and use data, they are beginning to look for specialists who can do so. If you look at all the major job opportunity platforms such as Indeed and Dice, you will see that there are increasing number of job postings looking for data analysts and consultants. The demand for professionals with this particular skill set is on the rise while the supply remains low. This creates great job opportunities for individuals within this field. Add more firepower to your Marketing, Supply Logistics, Human Resource, or Science degrees.

PROGRAM

For this Data Analytics workshop; we’ll be learning R. R is a tool for statistics and data modeling. The R programming language is elegant, versatile, and has a highly expressive syntax designed around working with data. R is more than that, though — it also includes extremely powerful graphics capabilities. If you want to easily manipulate your data and present it in compelling ways, R is the tool for you.

HOW COMPANIES ARE USING R?

  • Facebook - For behavior analysis related to status updates and profile pictures.

  • Google - For advertising effectiveness and economic forecasting.

  • Twitter - For data visualization and semantic clustering

  • Microsoft - Acquired Revolution R company and use it for a variety of purposes.

  • Xbox uses R for a great gaming experience.

  • Uber - For statistical analysis

  • Airbnb - Scale data science.

  • IBM - To help create IBM Watson, an open, cognitive computing technology platform that represents a new era in computing where systems understand the world like humans do: through senses, learning, and experience.
