About This Course

Your company’s data will house patterns of behaviour that offer an insight into your clients or customers. In this course, you’ll discover how to best investigate the information you already house, to allow for better business choices.

Across 14 lessons, you’ll learn how to run different types of data models, depending on the questions you’re asking of your data.

By the end of the course, you’ll understand the analysis opportunities available to you, based on the data you currently have, and how to modify how you store it for an expansion of that range.
