INFT71-223: Business Analytics and Big Data


Unprecedented volumes of data are being created on an almost daily basis, and the amount of data we generate is expected to double every two years. This ‘Big Data’ has the power to change the way we work, live, and think. We are entering a new period of ‘datafication’ - a modern technological trend turning many aspects of our life into computerised data, and transforming this data into new forms of value. This ongoing datafication of our lives will create unprecedented demand for data scientists and business people who can derive value from unstructured data to transform the world around them.
