​数据分析Data Analysis​



Program Overview


Business intelligence (BI) and data analytics is in the midst of a revolution due to the democratization of data, the rise of big data, real-time predictive analytics, AI and machine learning techniques. This new era of augmented analytics empowers people of all skills and experience to focus on critical business needs, minimizing the need for heavy-lifting in terms of visualizations, finding insights, and managing volumes of data in spreadsheets and databases. Cleaning, transforming, and modeling data to discover useful information for business decision-making is the basis of this program. The purpose of data analysis within this project is to extract useful information from data and taking the decision based upon the data analysis.

IBM Cognos Analytics is an advanced analytics and BI solution that uses augmented intelligence to streamline workflows, minimize errors and bias, and uncover compelling insights through pattern detection and other advanced techniques.

Cognos Analytics helps small and large organizations maximize the value of their data, unearth insights, tell stories, and respond in real time to customer demands and business needs. Like an AI co-pilot, Cognos Analytics can alert and guide you through not just what is happening, but why it’s happening and what to do next. With results you can trust to help make better business decisions and to plan with confidence no matter what tomorrow brings.

Within this project we will use business intelligence to look backward at historical data to describe things that have happened using IBM Cognos, while data analytics within this project will use data science techniques to predict what will or should happen the future business of IBM.

Business intelligence in this project will involve the use of data to help make business decisions. This Business Intelligence refers to the technologies, applications, and practices for the collection, integration, analysis, and presentation of business information in this sense. The purpose of utilizing IBM Cognos Analytics ] is to support better business decision-making. However, this cannot be achieved without the use of data analytics in the descriptive, predictive, and perspective scope to provide IBM an all-encompassing picture of best practices and future strategies.
