An Introduction to Data Analytics

Wednesday 17 July 9:30am to 1:00pm
Location: PFP Leeds House, Stanley House, The Boulevard, Clarence Dock, Leeds, LS10 1PZ

Specialist data consultant, Jonathan Jedrczak of Wakefield-based Data Consulting Ltd, leads this unique event focusing on the fascinating and emerging subject that is Data Analytics.

What is data analytics? It's the science of analysing raw data so that conclusions can be made about that information. Techniques can reveal trends and metrics that would otherwise be lost in the mass of information. These conclusions can then be used to optimise processes to increase the overall efficiency of a business or system.
