Tomorrow I Will Be Facilitating A Data Analytics Workshop > I Love Data!!!

I love data!

And with that love of seeing the numbers behind things and the stories the data tells, I get to do what I do best… train people to use the data in their business to drive better decision-making.

Topics covered in the training include:

  • What is Data Analytics?
  • Overview of Data Analytics in the Philippines
  • Self-Assessment of our own Data Analytics
  • Finding, Mining and Presenting Data
  • Big Data and Data Warehousing
  • Descriptive, Predictive, and Prescriptive Analytics
  • Business Intelligence and Business Dashboards
  • Using Data Analytics to Drive Decisions


The first three parts of the training set the foundation we currently see in most organizations concerned with data analytics. Knowing who are analysts and learning more about the world wide talent gap helps get us in the mind set that we have to do more with less.

The next section is all about using methodologies to be more efficient and optimal in finding, mining and presenting data. This is targeted to building better reports that do more then just report, but actually influence decision-making.

The next two sections are the heart of the class… talking about Big Data and the 3 types of analyitics. This is an area most people coming to the training really gain a lot of useful insight from.

Sections 7 and 8 are all about adding value to take a good analyst and empower them to be a great analyst.

I’m expecting 12-15 people which is the idea size for a group discussion with a lot of give and take about how data analytics is being used and what can be done to raise the bar.

Nerd alert. I love this stuff!!!
