The global Big Data Analytics market size, which is currently valued around $231.43 billion, is projected to reach $549.73 billion by 2028. Despite significant market potential, there is a dearth of analytical talent – data scientists (akin to the Wall Street quants of the 1990s), analysts and managers – to leverage the economic value of big data.

Big data analysis is likely to fuel the next wave of growth in productivity, innovation, and competition in the marketplace. The organizations’ ability to unlock the potential of big data and lead in the marketplace will be largely determined by its ability to tackle major hurdles in effectively managing big data – identifying the business use case, hiring, nurturing, and retaining the right analytical talent for conducting big data analytics, and embracing data driven culture for making business decisions. 

This programme aims to help the participants build a solid foundation on big data and analytics. It will enable the participants to learn, design and build big data analytic solutions to solve business problems and help improve their data-driven decision-making skills. The programme design with a right mix of cases, lectures and hands-on sessions will allow the participants to effectively leverage advanced analytical methods and tools to solve business problems.
