Data Science training for BI Analysts

Business analysts and programmers are getting more and more into contact with advanced analytics. Although not the core of their job, it is important that they gain an initial understanding of what it is, and what value it can bring to their organization. Therefore, we have created a 2-day introductory course in Data Science explaining all the important concepts, and the process that leads to a successful project. We end the course with practical examples and applications of machine learning to give food for thought for all participants. 

Course Objective
