The Data Analytics programme is offered by University of Porto.
Decision-making processes within companies and other organizations rely heavily on the knowledge that decision makers have about the reality where the company acts (markets, customers, producers, etc.).
Much of this knowledge can be drawn from data resulting from normal business activity that are continuously accumulated by transactional information systems. Efficient and effective analysis and processing of such data for actionable knowledge may result in better performance of the organization.
The data analysis process includes various statistical and data mining (data exploration) techniques, specifically targeted for the extraction of actionable knowledge from large volumes of existing data.
All that knowledge extracted from the data provides, ultimately, support in decision making. According to a recent report by the McKinsey Global Institute this is the age of analytics since companies and other organizations are competing in a data driven world.
