Description

The module aims to equip students with an understanding of what data is, why and how it is converted into information and used as business intelligence to drive business strategy and business decision making.

It will cover traditional sources of business intelligence as well as Big Data, Open Data and Business Intelligence in the Cloud. Students will use commercial tools for discovery and visualisation of data and will gain an appreciation of reporting findings to management.
