BA 513 Big Data, Business Process and Enterprise Analytics 3 Cr.
Big data analytics is the application of analytic techniques to very large, diverse data sets that often include varied data types and streaming data. Students will learn how to define big data and big data analytic techniques and review big data use cases. Big data analytics explores business and customer interactions from data that seldom finds its way into a data warehouse or standard report. This data is often unstructured data coming from sensors, devices, third parties, internet applications, and social media; much of it sourced in real time on a large scale. Using advanced analytics techniques such as predictive analytics, data mining, statistics, and natural language processing, businesses can study big data to understand the current state of the business and can track evolving aspects such as customer behavior.
