Data Analytics for E-Commerce
Data Analytics for E-Commerce
This is a foundation programme of a data driven economy where companies are able to fine tune their business in a more innovative and technological data centric supported approach. The current wave of eCommerce transformation is driven by disruptive technology, changing demographics, early adopters who understand the potential of data driven technology, and more recently black swan events as the Covid-19 outbreak resulting in a global health crisis forcing businesses to rethink their business approach. The pressure to innovate and compete is tremendous.
With these challenge on hands, businesses are now embarking on transforming themselves digitally and seek to bring about better data driven decisions to their business for competitive edge and survival.
Design for business leaders, without any technical knowledge needed, this programme will allow you to gain an understanding of what insights data analytics can provide, particularly for those in ecommerce.
You will be guided through the basics of data analytics and will experience how one can perform predictive modelling and leverage analytics to model problems. This will prepare you to ask the right questions about data, communicate effectively with data scientists, and do basic exploration of complex datasets.
