Gain the skills and knowledge of techniques and technologies to deal professionally with experts in all advanced data management fields.

About this event


Data is one of the biggest assets of any organization. It helps firms understand and enhance their processes, thereby saving time and money. The efficient use of data helps businesses to reduce wastage by analyzing different marketing channels’ performance and focusing on those offering the highest ROI. However, data is useless unless it is converted into valuable information. Data Science plays a big part in this conversion as it involves mining large datasets containing structured and unstructured data and identifying hidden patterns to extract actionable insights.

This training course is designed to provide participants with the relevant best practices, and the essential concepts of the Big Data ecosystem, as well as the opportunities for Artificial Intelligence. Additionally, this course will discuss the disciplines to which modern data relates. This will allow participants to gain the skills and knowledge in order to become specialists in techniques and technologies and deal professionally with experts in all advanced data management fields.


By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of the concept of data science and designing data for efficient analysis.
  • Identify the difference between predictive models and pattern finding ones
  • Compare solutions related to Data Analysis vs. Machine Learning
  • Learn about the concept of “proprietary” and “open source” technologies
  • Create a modern data flow outline from sources to reports.

Training Methodology:

This training course is designed to be highly interactive and participatory. To ensure maximum comprehension and retention, this training will utilize a variety of proven virtual learning methods such as break-out sessions for group discussions and brainstorming, virtual icebreakers, recorded videos, case studies, and readings.

Who Should Attend:

Experience level: Intermediate, 2 to 3 years as a Business Analyst, Data Analyst, IT Professional or an undergrad with technical background.

Course Credit:

  • 25 IIBA CDUs
  • 25 PMI PDUs
