Discover how Data Analytics can help solve your business problems, and meet and brief a Data Scientist.

The key to effective use of data analytics in a business is by developing and asking meaningful questions about the business and it’s operations. Yet, the process of developing these questions remains an elusive challenge for managers.

By going through a set of simulated exercises, this masterclass will demonstrate the process of designing relevant business questions and show you how data analytics can potentially help to answer these questions. Participants will also have the opportunity to work with a data scientist through these exercises and gain insight on the benefits and challenges of business data analytics.
