What does ‘big data’ really mean? Do you use it now? Were you using it before it was called big data?

Data can be overwhelming until you learn to untangle the information. Taming big data can lead to insights that will benefit your business.  Learn to use the every day events and information around you to spot opportunities or potential trends. Discover the weight behind big data, where to find it and how to use it to improve strategic decision making in your organization. This workshop will hone in on the methods used to interpret the story that data tells as well as how to develop a data-savvy team and culture. You will walk out of this workshop feeling jazzed and confident about the information around you and how to use it.
