Harness the Potential of Big Data and Analytics Strategy

The convergence of big data with technologies such as cloud services, sensors, ubiquitous computing, mobile devices and the Internet of Things has created vast new opportunities for business. Big data has become a competitive and sustainable advantage for many organisations. To harness the benefits of big data, however, business leaders face the pressing challenge of not only acquiring the right technologies and talent to analyse and interpret the data, but also to weave a data-centric mindset into the organisation’s structure and cultural fabric.

This five-day programme empowers you with the skills and confidence to tackle data-driven opportunities and accelerate data-analysis transformation in your organisation. Through lectures, case studies and discussions, you will gain real-world insights on various applications of big data analytics, and how they can be used to fuel better decision-making within the context of your own organisation.
