Data has become one of the most important assets, if not the most, all organizations have nowadays. All businesses, no exceptions, leverage on data to make decisions -from daily (operational) ones to long term (strategic) ones. Being able to analyse data sets and extract meaningful insights from the data has become a critical and very demanded capacity in most companies. Data comes in all sorts of size, structure, format or type. In this course, we will focus on providing tools to visualize common sets of data to enable its analysis by business users through tools like apps or dashboards.
