BIG DATA VISUALIZATION AND STORYTELLING
Knowledge of Excel and/or SQL is highly recommended. If you do not have knowledge in these areas, we strongly recommend that you take Intro to Data Analysis with Excel (CEBD 1300) and Intro to SQL (CEWP 215).
Note that you will be required to do 5-10 hours of work per week outside of class time. Those with little to no prior knowledge will require more time to gain familiarity with the concepts.
Your take-awayThis course is a great way to help you:
• Learn how to transform data into insights;
• Translate business needs into data analysis and visualize it with best-in-class graphics;
• Assemble graphics, maps and numbers into stunning stories;
• Learn how to manage a Big Data project.
Our approachIn this course, you'll gain real-world knowledge, experience and insights through lectures from experienced pros who'll show you the ropes. More excitingly, you'll learn through hands-on projects using the most powerful equipment and the very latest software like data transformation tools, NoSQL and Hadoop, Data Visualization and Data Storytelling tools.
