Business Analytics Thinking in

Data Science

June 30, 2016, 9am to 5pm

Data science – the up and coming emergent field of expertise and competency touted to be the next big thing that will give companies their competitive advantage and open the space for their next level growth. It is spreading and getting adopted very quickly by business organizations in the developed nations and it is fast creeping into the realm of the developing economies as well. This is not a surprise with the continuous expansion of the internet with the ongoing explosion and evolution of digital and computational technology leading to the generation of big data and the capability to store and process these.

This is a 1-day learning session on data science but with particular focus on its key component– analytics! Data science is too large a topic to tackle for a day but business and data analytics plays a core role. Aside from introducing the participants to the data science methodology, the session will familiarize them with the major categories of analytics under which the gamut of tools, techniques and algorithm will fall. Note that aside from a brief and bird’s eye view, it is not the intent of the session to run through and let participants be a master of each and every available tool and algorithm.  Select tools and algorithm might be picked and be given a bit more attention in so far as these will help in the understanding of the purpose and use of each type of analytics which will be linked to the business problem or issue that it can address. In fact the main objective underlying this session is the imparting of fundamental concepts and principles for the mind in doing business data analytics that should guide the crafting of data science solutions for business problems and issues. The main value of data science after all is how it can make possible, enable and improve a business’ data-driven decision making. If data mining and analytics doesn’t contribute to this, it will just be a waste of effort and investment. The design to veer away from algorithms and data mining technology is deliberate. In the still fluid and developing arena of data science these will pass, evolve and be replaced by new ones but the core principles and concepts of how business analytics can be tagged and relevant to business  decision making will remain.

 

This session will consists of case exercises and discussions where these will serve as a channel for the participants to learn and put into practice the concepts and principles involved and also give them a view of how it could apply to the real-work settings in their organizations. The session will be strictly limited to 18 participants only. This is to ensure a high engagement level and interaction between the Mentors/Facilitators and the participants.
