Organisations, as they increasingly embed technology in their activities, have available to them large sets of data associated with their key activities – for example, sales, customer service, production, and logistics. These activities often generate large streams of data even for small organisations. It is possible for organisations to exploit this data to monitor, to improve, and to innovate – but only if they apply sound data analytic techniques. This Data Analytics – Foundation module provides you with foundational knowledge and skills in data analytics, which will enable you to start exploiting your data to deliver business intelligence that can help your business reach its goals.

- Understand the key concepts relating to the application of data analytics in business.
