Event description

Description

Data Analysis is taking the business world by storm. In 2010 Google's Eric Schmidt said,

"Every 2 days we create as much information as we did from the dawn of history up to 2003".

The rate at which we've been generating data has continued to grow exponentially since then, with industry experts predicting a "Data Tsunami" in the next 5 years.


Even small companies in Northern Ireland are generating vast quantities data; but what value can be gained from it?

In this seminar, Belfast Met's experts will explain how your company can leverage the information it already has, drawing on the knowledge and expertise we've gained preparing students to work as

Data Analysts in companies including Deloitte, EY and PwC.

We'll introduce you to some of the specialist data analysis tools used by "the big 4" accountancy firms, and demonstrate how MS Excel is eating into this market with new features in 2016.

Finally we'll share how advanced data analysis can be performed for free with the Python programming language and a few lines of code.

Credits go to Open Data NI for providing Northern Ireland Government procurement data, and local geospatial data for analysis during this seminar.

This event is funded through Connected in association with Colleges NI.
