Data Science for non-Data Scientists – mode of study
- Option 1: 5-day public training
- Option 2: In-company training
Data Science for non-Data Scientists – why?
Data Analytics has become critical for many business decision makers. With new, powerful and affordable tools available on the market, more and more business people are finding they are empowered to do something intelligent with their data. As a result, many businesses already have a number of valuable super users. Their hybrid role bridges the gap between the high level, technical Data Scientist and the more business-oriented data discovery analyst.
In this unique 5-day training you gain the expertise and skills to perform some of the analytic functions that have been traditionally reserved for Data Scientists.
Data Scientists – worldwide shortage
The demand for Data Scientists continues to grow beyond supply. Companies of all kinds are feeling the acute shortage of trained Data Scientists today. Empowering business people to do much of the data analysis themselves allow the highly trained Data Scientists to focus on the things that require their specific expertise.
As a business user/non-Data Scientist, you can succeed in this critical position, but only if you are empowered with the right tools and processes. You need to be able to analyze the data without having extensive technical knowledge of the underlying IT applications and infrastructure. Self-service data preparation and advanced analytical tools will provide you with the ability to perform the critical task of combining Big Data with your organization's issues and opportunities. The growing set of powerful self-service tools available on the market, make this possible.
Data Science for non-Data Scientists – who should attend?
Is your primary job function outside the field of statistics and analytics? Do you have a line-of-business role, are you a business analyst, data analyst or a member of the Business Intelligence (BI) or IT team? Do you want to practice the self-service data preparation capabilities of SAS and the ease of use of advanced analytics in exploring and visualizing data? Then this is the training for you!
We have developed a unique 5-day curriculum to specifically address the training needs of non-Data Scientists/business users. If you are willing to learn new methods and use new tools, regardless of whether or not you currently use SAS software, then join this 5-day training for the non-Data Scientist.
Data Science for non-Data Scientists – in-company
With at least 5 delegates an in-house training could be your best choice. An in-company training has several advantages. It:
- saves you time and money
- enables you to train in the comfort of your own working environment
- Will take place at a date chosen by and convenient for you
- Sensitive issues can be openly discussed because there are no outsiders present
Data Science for non-Data Scientists – prerequisites
As a participant in the Data Science for non-Data Scientists training, you should have a solid business domain knowledge and be familiar with working with data. No programming knowledge is required. No prior SAS experience is needed. A basic understanding of statistics and the willingness to learn is all you need. We will provide access to online learning material prior to the training to help you get started.
Data Science for non-Data Scientists – what will you learn?
After this 5-day training, you will be able to perform the main data related tasks for the non-Data Scientist using the point-and-click capabilities of SAS Visual Analytics: data access and data manipulation, data exploration using analytics, and building predictive models. You will learn how to:
- load data from different formats
- prepare data for analysis
- analyze data using effective data visualization
- build and compare data mining tools
Data Science for non-Data Scientists – number of participants
Due to the interactive character of this training and to optimize the benefits you derive from various exercises, we keep the number of participants limited.
