The Centre of Innovation and Excellence of Middlesex University Dubai and SAS organised an introductory corporate certification workshop in Data Science on 12th and 13th January 2018. The programme had a special Data Visualization component offered by Tableau training partner – BEINEX. The programme was the first level certification (introduction to Data Analytics) from the joint initiative and was termed as ‘Data Analytics Associate’. It was designed taking under consideration the growing market demand for Data Science and its application in various business verticals such as marketing and sales, operations, HR, IT and several others.
The programme was designed and delivered by Dr. Krishnadas Nanath, Data Scientist and Corporate Trainer on Data Analytics at Middlesex University Dubai. Dr. Nanath designed this programme keeping in mind the demand for Data Science tools in the industry and hence participants were exposed to R Studio, SAS and Tableau. The external sessions for this two day workshop were shared by Mr. Badshah Mukherjee (Practice Lead – Analytics- Middle East & Turkey and SAS Trainer) and Mr. Indumon Das (Founder, BEINEX Consulting – Tableau Partners).
There were more than 40 participants representing several industries with major participation from UAE Exchange, AlFuttaim, TECOM Group, Entertainer, Huawei, Mashreq Bank, Halliburton, Euromonitor and others. The programme focused on hands-on Analytics and introduced the participants to business data-sets over several Data Science tools. There was a special section on Social Media Analytics to provide a developer perspective to SM platforms like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Participants completing this level are eligible for further joint certifications from Middlesex University Dubai.
