Motivation for the Data Analytics and Visualization Course

By the end of the training, course participants will have acquired the skill to assess the quality of data before embarking on any analytical or visualization tasks. The participants will be in position to perform data analytics through the four stages of the data analytics lifecycle i.e. describe data, carry out all possible diagnostics, prescribe and predict using data. Secondly, the participants will able to tell a poorly constructed visual from well-done one, but mostly they will be skilled in designing and constructing neat visuals that take into consideration the theories of data visualization.
