Improve Business Performance through Fact-based Decision-Making with Analytics
Thomas Devonport in his book titled, “Competing on analytics: The new science of winning”, claims that a significant proportion of high-performance companies have high analytical skills among their personnel. The rise of business analytics has resulted in a great demand for trained business analysts and the trend will only continue to rise. According to Wall Street Journal, “Companies, barraged with data from the web and other sources, want employees who can both sift through the information and help solve business problems. As the use of analytics grows quickly, companies will need employees who understand the data”. Business increasingly need to know how to leverage analytics to gain managerial and strategic insights to improve their competitive position.
Business Analytics is a set of techniques and processes that can be used to analyze large and noisy data to improve business performance through fact-based decision-making. It nurtures the amalgamation of data warehousing, data mining, statistics, and machine learning; applies it in various functional areas of business and management to find patterns in the relationships; creates capabilities for companies to compete in the market effectively. It has been proven to be highly useful in industries such as banking, insurance, telecom, retail, travel, healthcare etc. and has shown very positive impact on business decision making.
The program is designed to provide in-depth knowledge of data-based decision making using real case studies. The module based program would impart participants a sequential learning with a strong foundation of data analytic techniques followed by real applications across various domains.
This program will:
- Help participants understand the critical concepts of business analytics and research, including research design, data processing and data analysis.
