Spreadsheet models and pivot tables were once the cutting-edge tools of business analysis. But the Big Data revolution has changed everything. Tasks that once required armies of business analysts are being automated and scaled with software, allowing decision makers to go deep into the data to understand how their business is running and what their customers want. This has led to a new superstar job class: the Business Data Scientist who is able to combine science and engineering tools with business and economic context to build data analyses that drive better decisions.
Matt Taddy, developer of the Big Data curriculum at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, has made a career of training students to use economic principles to connect business decisions to massive data. Business Data Science is an essential primer for those who want to use cutting-edge machine learning to have a real impact on the direction of their business.
With Business Data Science, readers will learn:
With Business Data Science you have everything you need to connect business problems to data and drive decisions with data analysis. You'll understand your customers better, make more informed business decisions, achieve maximum value--and thrive in today's data-driven economy.
