Understanding of traditional data management and analysis methods like SQL, data warehouses, business intelligence, OLAP, etc... Understanding of basic statistics and probability (mean, variance, probability, conditional probability, etc....)
If you try to make sense out of the data you have access to or want to analyse unstructured data available on the net (like Twitter, Linked in, etc...) this course is for you.
It is mostly aimed at decision makers and people who need to choose what data is worth collecting and what is worth analyzing.

During the course delegates will be presented with working examples of mostly open source technologies.
Short lectures will be followed by presentation and simple exercises by the participants
