IAB303 Data Analytics for Business Insight

The effective use of data to address business concerns is accepted as a critical success factor for small, medium and large enterprises alike. Data Analytics is central to contemporary approaches to Information Systems (IS) Architecture, contributing to the modelling of information for the purpose of addressing key business problems. In this unit you will draw on your knowledge and skills learnt in the core units Building IT Systems (IFB104) and Database Management (IFB105) to learn how to problem solve with data for the purposes of extracting business insight. Through the practical sessions you will explore the relationship between common business concerns and the data and analytics that can be used to address them, developing the skills to use a range of analytics techniques with a variety of data. You will also have the opportunity to learn how to present analytics in a meaningful way for business use. Through the lectures, you will be able to increase your understanding of different kinds of data, their importance to business, and why certain analytical and visualisation techniques can be used.
