Congratulations on getting this far.

By now you will have an understanding of the key concepts of big data analytics, where big data is coming from, and why it is so challenging to analyse. You will also have an appreciation of some of the implications of big data analytics.

Coming up next week

Join us next week to discover how big data analytics can be applied to solve problems in different industries. We’ll look closely at case studies in the areas of:

  • environment
  • sport
  • health, and
  • business.

These examples should start you thinking about the possibilities big data analytics presents for all areas in our future.
