It was an excellent course

Data analytics entails much more than just data analysis. The majority of the required labor will be done upfront, in the preparation, integration, and collection of data, then again when updating, testing, and improving models to ensure that the results they produce are accurate, especially on advanced projects. Data engineers will be included in analytic teams in addition to data analysts and data scientists. Their job is helping get sets of data ready to be analyzed.

The process begins with data collection, then data scientists determine what information is required for a specific application, and then they work alone or alongside data engineers and IT professionals to prepare the data for usage. Data integration methods such as a data warehouse, NoSQL database, or Hadoop cluster may be required to combine data from several sources.There are other cases where the collection process might need to pull a subset out of the stream of data that goes into Hadoop and putting it into a separate section within the system, so it gets analyzed without hurting the complete data set.

When the needed data is put into place, they will next fix and find quality problems that might affect how accurate the analytic application is. This includes running data cleansing, and data profiling jobs that ensures all the information within the data set is constant, and duplicate entries and errors are gotten rid of. More data work is done to organize and maneuver the data for whatever use has been planned. Data governance policies are added to make sure the data is used in the right way and stays within the corporate standards.

This book is a good resource for learning about various business analytics technologies. The datasets for the demonstrations are available on the book's companion website. I went from being a complete noob with spare time on his hands to someone armed with knowledge and enthusiastic about a new field. This fantastic audiobook comes highly recommended by me. It was an excellent course for all students.

Useful audiobook

This was a pretty quick and sweet audible. I must admit that before purchasing this audible, I was unsure about the audio book's quality and value because it had been taken by a small number of people compared to other Data Analytics audiobook. But I was really surprised.

I enjoyed this audible since it was fascinating, instructive, and entertaining. The content was excellent and well worth the money I paid. It has aroused my interest in learning more about this topic. It's a pity that this course has yet to be found by a large number of individuals.

The most significant advantage of big data is that, when used appropriately, it can lead to a wide range of significant benefits based on the results generated by the software you employ to analyze it. As a result, it will be easier to comprehend the asymmetrical parts that pertain to either your marketing or production goals.

I would strongly recommend this audible to anyone with some prior data analytics experience who wants to gain a better understanding of a complex but critical process in data analytics program.

I admire the author for this audiobook

This book does an excellent job of demonstrating all of the technical intricacies concerning big data analytics, data mining, cluster and rules analysis, and the most commonly used data mining tools, as well as the wide parallels and contrasts between them. I've used the book to study for several big data courses and found it to be quite helpful and supportive. I admire the author for producing such an excellent work.

It has great information and is well written

When it comes to using data analytics to finish a task, the first thing you should think about is if the procedure you're about to use is actually going to be worth it in the long run. Data analytics costs are often quite high, especially if you are going either very wide or extremely granular, and it is possible that the costs are going to end up outweighing the benefits. For example, if you plan to go through all of the company’s old sales data in order to find out the most profitable product that you sold last year in order to more effectively realign your business moving forward. Even if you don't uncover anything valuable, having this knowledge suggests you'll need to pivot towards products with a larger audience.

On the contrary, however, if you spend the same amount of time to determine the number of sales you made on days with either 1 or 0 in the date, you likely could have put that money to better use elsewhere. In the first instance, assuming you found actionable information, you would then be able to look at the market conditions around your best sellers and strive to recreate them in as many different ways as possible. With this clearly outlined you will then be able to shift the direction that your business is going to move in for the better in both the long and the short-term. The first example gives you more insight by indicating which products your consumers are interested in, as well as which ones they are not interested in at all. This will then present you with a number of options for improving the efficiency of your company's resources. Regardless of the conclusion, by laying the proper foundation, you will almost certainly be able to reduce waste in at least one area while also being able to focus more easily on the elements of the organization that will improve sales income the most.

After this audiobook I know the little changes I can make that will help me on my path of transformation. It has great information and is well written.

I highly recommend this great audiobook

Most jobs will employ some type of data analytics to assist them in making better business decisions. You will be one step ahead of everyone else if you grasp how to analyze data before you are employed. You won't have to worry about a lot of algorithms in this book, and it's not meant to be a replacement for one.

This book will guide you through the basic principles and concepts of data analytics. You'll also discover how to lay a foundation for more harder algorithms. As a result, rather than specific algorithms, this book is organized around broad ideas.

This audio book contains a collection of the most significant data analytics fundamentals. The principles include everything from the fundamentals of what data analytics is to using data analytics approaches to aid in business decision-making, such as which products to put on sale and when.

I'm a master's student in computer science, and this book is written in a way that anyone who is even somewhat interested in the fast-growing field of data analytics and data science can read and understand it without the technical jargon seen in other works. I highly recommend this great audio book to everyone.

A clear and well-decorated audio-book

A good audio-book for a business person to learn about data science. But IMO a poor choice for learning how to be a data scientist, there's very little practical teaching in the volume. I have learned so many new concepts that have revolutionized my way of working with data. A clear and well-decorated audio-book for a long time to come will be in my audible.

Great job!

Audio-book is a great crash course in advanced analytics. The field is extremely wide but this audio-book is an excellent survey of the basics and areas for further exploration. It will not make you an expert but at least you will know what the experts are talking about. It is decorated with just enough math for themanager to understand.

These can be very useful

These can be very useful for making flashcards and identifying topics for further research. After reading the audio-book you of course won't fully understand all of these concepts and terms, but there is significant utility in being aware of these concepts and ready to connect them while working on problems.
