We have seen massive increases in the volume, velocity, and variety of data generated around the world. Organizations, large and small, can now take this seemingly random data and turn it into actionable business intelligence. If information is the new oil, then we need workers who can refine data and then act as internal combustion engines to drive an organization forward.
Understanding and translating analytics into data-driven business decision-making is not just a niche skill. Companies need skilled and certified individuals who can help tease out actionable information out of data sets, create context, and build confidence.
Join CompTIA’s Dr. James Stanger and Seth Robinson for a lively discussion about the skills that individuals need to gather, validate, and visualize data and information today. James and Seth will focus on the job roles and skills found in the CompTIA Data+ certification.
In this webinar, you will learn:
• The democratization of data
• Data collection methods all IT professionals should know
• Mining and manipulating complex datasets to identify trends
• Making data searchable
• Data visualization and reporting skills
• Data standardization and governance
• How data analytics is vital for technical and “non-technical” workers inside and outside of IT
