"Most organizations early on in the data-science learning curve spend most of their time assembling data and not analyzing it. Mature data science organizations realize that in order to be successful they must enable
their members to access and use all available data—not some of the data, not a subset, not a sample, but all data. A lawyer wouldn’t go to court with only some of the evidence to support their case—they would go with all appropriate evidence.
...The fundamental building block of a successful and mature data science capability is the ability to ask the right types of questions of the data. This is rooted in the understanding of how the business runs... The mature data science organization has a
collaborative culture in which the data science team works side by side with the business to solve critical problems using data. ... [it] includes one or more people with the skills of a data artist and a data storyteller. Stories and visualizations are where
we make connections between facts. They enable the listener to understand better the context (What?), the why (So what?), and “what will work” in the future (Now what?)."
Peter Guerra and Kirk Borne in Ten Signs of Data Science Maturity (2016)
Explore the world of Business Intelligence through
the use cases supporting different functions within that company. This workshop provides data-driven and analytically focused approaches to help you answer questions in operations, marketing, and finance.
In Part 1, you
will learn about extracting data from different sources, cleaning that data, and exploring its structure. In Part 2, you will explore predictive models and cluster analysis for Business Intelligence and analyze financial times series. Finally, in Part 3, you
will learn to communicate results with sharp visualizations and interactive, web-based dashboards.
After completing the use cases, you will be able to work with business data in the R programming environment and realize
how data science helps make informed decisions and develops business strategy. Along the way, you will find helpful tips about R and Business Intelligence.
