Gain knowledge and know-how.

This interactive workshop is designed to help business users broaden their understanding of data analysis while working directly with SAP analytics tools.* Participants will gain a ‘big picture’ overview of analytics concepts, terminology, and methods in addition to hands on technical experience. Attendees will take home practical skills in slicing and dicing, data visualization, dashboards, data mining, descriptive and predictive analytics, and mobile apps.

Data on-the-job.

Business questions are explored by applying data analytics techniques in ‘roll-up-your-sleeves’ exercises. Attendees get real-world experience determining sales trends, creating a shopping cart analysis by mining the buying habits of 'big box' customers, segmenting by locations, sales turnover, profit margin, and much more.

Who should attend ... and why?

Business users will not only learn independent data utilization, but also how to clearly communicate analytics needs back to their organizations. Attendees can also interact with thought leaders and other like-minded colleagues for best practices. Recommended for: Accounting Managers, Financial Analysts, Human Resources Directors, Marketing Managers, and IT professionals new to BI and analytics.
