Big Data and Analytics

Organisations today are constantly gathering data, yet few can analyse it properly. When it comes to implementing data insights in a business setting, there are several ways to do it. This is why we provide various courses to suit your needs so that you can learn more about big data, business data analytics and the ins and outs of data science. While there are some similarities between the three disciplines, they are different and what you learn in the courses will differ significantly. So, what's the difference?

Well, big data is exactly what it sounds like. It refers to any large, fast or complex data– which can be tricky to manage. It's not just the type or size of data though, it's more about what can be done with it. With the right processes and perspective, big data can provide businesses with the leverage they need to make precise, strategic decisions with confidence.

Business data analytics works on the principle of traditional data analytics (process of analysing massive data sets to get insights and predictions). But it puts the idea in the context of the business insight. It takes a narrower focus to data-driven business decisions.

Data science deals with vast volumes of data to find unseen patterns that help drive vital business decisions. By using complex machine learning algorithms to build predictive models, it can uncover patterns and then visualise them in an easier to understand way. These are incredibly valuable tools to have in your working toolkit. With our businesses analytics and big data training, you'll learn to find hidden data insights, making you an asset to any team.

Big data and business analytics training could unlock your next career move

Big data can be invaluable to businesses as it is used to uncover answers that help them not only run more efficiently but can also aid in optimising product development and yielding a better return of investment. Knowing how to decipher and yield information from big data and business analytics can be a rewarding and lucrative career.

Especially as the potential for big data has skyrocketed in the past decade, and organisations are still catching up. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts data science employment will grow by 36% by 2031 – and demand is similar around the world.

The demand for professionals with data skills is high, but there is still a significant skills shortage in the field. By taking a course in business analytics or big data training, you could start a career in high-paying analytics roles.
