Introduction to Data Science
Businesses often suspect that they want Data Science capabilities, and may even sense a need for Data Science capabilities, but many are not sure where to start. Learn exactly what Data Science is, who Data Scientists are, and what's possible through Data Science.
Business Case for Data Science
Creating a data science strategy isn’t a standalone activity; it must be driven by a business's overarching operations and strategy. This course will cover how to articulate a business’s strategic objectives and identify opportunities for data science-based transformation, a critical starting point for any data strategy.
Human Capital of Data Science
The human capital component of Data Science is critical to delivering on a data science strategy. Learn how to recruit, hire, and train for a Data Science organization, and how to structure that organization in order to deliver value to the business. Asses ways to leverage data and data science to foster a data-driven culture throughout the business.
Data and Machine Learning Infrastructure Strategy
Technology needs are specific to each business; they depend on the types of data to be leveraged for Data Science, the form and magnitude of that data, the types of data science models that a business plans to create, and the overall scale of operations represented by those data science models. This lesson investigates the parameters that must be considered both in creating a Data Architecture Strategy and in building a Machine Learning Architecture to support Data Science initiatives.

"I really liked the program. I loved the human resource planning. I never did something like this. It made me feel like a real company builder. To create a 100 day plan is an amazing idea, i feel comfortable to use this for every company I will join. Especially planing my own 100-days, what a cool idea to think about. Never did something like that. I think there is potential for improvement in methods and examples which type of data science projects a common and how much time to calculate. It was hard for me to predict scope, timeframe and costs for the projects. I would love to see some examples, to feel more comfortable with my estimations on evaluating data science projects. All in a all. A great course and with amazing feedback by the mentors on my project. Great value for my money. Thank you. :-)"
Hi, The class was good and thorough, however, but they make it almost impossible to get that certificate of completion.
