This module introduces Big Data, a term which relates to the management and analysis of sets of data that are typically too large for traditional data-processing software.
Most businesses and organisations deal with large volumes of data on a day to day basis. It is what organisations do with the data that matters. Big data can be analysed for insights that lead to better decisions and strategic business moves.
This module is suitable for a wide range of candidates; for example, non-technical professionals who wish to build and demonstrate an understanding of Big Data, facilitating engagement with their technical colleagues or their suppliers, or students who wish to add general technical knowledge to sector-specific or general studies.
