Course Category: Technical Considerations for Data Initiatives

Course Format: Online

Course Solution: Data

While it is important to understand how to leverage your organizations data/information assets (from marketing to research to talent analytics), IT and business partners must effectively work together to recognize what questions need to be asked. This certificate combines the technical, managerial, and industry skills necessary to deploy this important new technology. Based on the candidates background and anticipated engagement in BI, this program can help prepare the novice or expand the knowledge of an experienced BI professional; as well as the non-IT executive interested in understanding how to leverage this important technology.

The Global Institute for IT Management (GIIM) has developed two 4-course certificate programs to address these important considerations. One, Deploying Analytics (described here) is similar to many university IT analytics programs that are being offered; albeit with a stronger focus on industry and practical considerations. The second, Managing Data as an Asset Certificate, focuses on the leadership, management, and industry skills necessary to leverage these important new technologies; how to derive value from data.

The courses in this certificate will address the technical considerations for implementing and integrating the information technologies that are required to have a successful/valuable big data/business analytics/knowledge management strategy across the enterprise, including robotics process automation, Cognitive Computing, AI (Artificial Intelligence), Blockchain, IoT (internet of things), Bring-Your-Own-Infrastructure, SMAC (Social, Mobile, Business Analytics, and Cloud), and security.
