Business survival and profitability are impacted by big-data dynamics and information driven competitive advantages. Therefore understanding value creation through analytics is no longer optional for an individual or a business or any intelligent entity - today, and in the visible future. As more companies collect data, they are increasingly at a disadvantage in terms of utilizing the data effectively. While many companies understand how to collect data and provide descriptive measures, few can generate the hidden value that can be uncovered through data analytics. This webinar will use a case study approach to inform participants about how data science is used to create extraordinary business value.
