Business Intelligence - Data-Driven Organisations A1N, 7,5 credits, IT746A

Nowadays many organisations turn to Business Intelligence and analytics in order to stay competitive.Its often claimed in literature that an organisation-wide data-driven culture needs to be established in order to exploit the full potential of advanced analytics (predictive- and prescriptive analytics).

A data-driven culture is characterized by a decision process that emphasise testing and experimentation, where data outweighs opinions, and where failure is accepted – as long as something is learnt from it. Organisations adopting a data-driven approach have opportunities to improve their business, and outperform other organisations.

The course includes both theory and practice, regarding what is meant by a data-driven culture and how it is related to Business Intelligence.
