Data Literacy Workshop: Understanding, Interpreting and Using Data
Our practice-oriented Data Literacy Workshop provides professionals as well as managers and decision makers in companies with the necessary skills to understand, correctly interpret and make sense of data. The goal of the workshop is to help you find your way through the buzzword jungle with the numerous terms such as raw data, data quality, data warehouse, data lake, etc. and to be able to have your say.
Ein Umdenken muss jetzt stattfinden! Unternehmen müssen weg von isolierten Lösungen, hin zu sogenannten Daten-Plattformen, die alle relevanten Daten zentral und in hoher Qualität vorhalten. Gleichzeitig sollten sie flexibel genug sein, um mit steigenden Anforderungen und Datenmengen mitzuhalten.
