Information Technology Infrastructure for Business Analytics

Performing business analytics functions on huge volumes of data generated from various day-to-day operations requires a solid understanding of how data captured at the operational level can be re-structured and used at the enterprise level to gain maximum effective results.

This course will provide students with data management knowledge in both operational and analytical database systems and infrastructure aspects, including theoretical foundations as well as meaningful hands-on experience. Examples include: standard relational database issues; analytical database topics; requirements imposed by the move to big data; business analytics infrastructure and tools used with big data.

SAS software tools will be used for the skills components of the course: “SAS SQL 1: Essentials” and “Introduction to SAS and Hadoop”
