Overview

The areas of Big Data, Data science and Business Intelligence are emerging as important drivers for economic development and growth.  These areas include a wide range of skills from various different disciplines and there are several career and skills development routes available. This programme focuses on core skills relevant to deploying Business Intelligence and Data Science applications in the cloud using the Microsoft Azure platform. 
   
The first part of this programme lays a foundation of data analysis concepts that includes fundamentals of storing, retrieving and manipulating data from relational databases, and using analysis tools to extract insights from data in MS Excel.
 
The second part of the programme introduces students to cloud concepts and core Azure services, as well as the use of tools that form part of the MS Azure platform to deploy business intelligence and data science applications in the cloud. Students use Power BI to prepare, model, vizualise and analyse data. Students also use Azure tools and techniques to set up machine learning applications, which will allow users to train, evaluate, and deploy models that solve business problems.
