Welcome to our final activity for the course.

Here, we want to take a big step back away from learning specific methods and instead look at the environment in which we are working as data analysts or working as a manager with data analysts. The world is changing very fast and as you build your skills, it is important to understand how you fit in. We hope that the following video helps with that. As a bit of a sneak peek, the good news is that as businesses have increasingly realised their data are a very valuable resource. Furthermore, with modern technology, businesses now have the ability to store and potential to analyse massive amounts of data. The current need is for individuals and teams who are able to make sense of it all. That puts data analysts, data scientists and data-savvy managers in high demand.
