BIG DATA: THE ANALYTICAL REVOLUTION
Everything revolves around Big Data nowadays: deciding on the business strategy, introducing new products or services, or even making everyday decisions.
Especially for entrepreneurs, it is crucial to be able to process, analyse and extract meaningful information from large amounts of complex data. The ability to interpret Big Data can make a difference between the success or failure of the whole business.
IE Business School and High-Tech Park Azerbaijan invite you to an exclusive event – Big Data Event – that will feature a master class by a renowned consultant and research analyst, as well as a Q&A session on the education and career in Big Data. More information is available here.
