Overview

The “Big Data” phenomenon has come about with the increased production, storage and availability of digital data. Organizations are now grappling with the problem on how to use these data effectively for the benefits of the business. Big Data Analytics is the practice of using digital data for understanding insights from data. To unlock the potential contained within the Big Data requires the application of techniques to explore and convey the key insights. Data Storytelling is the essential data science skill that everyone needs. Well told data stories are change drivers within the modern organization. How do we find the most important insights in our business data and communicate them in a compelling way? How do we connect the data that we have to the key underlying business issue? Data is the oil, and data storytelling is the engine that facilitates its true value.
