Some argue that the most crucial step in data analytics is in fact the very first one: exploratory analysis. When you first receive a new data set, nothing is more important than the initial exploratory work you undertake to better understand what you’re looking at—and, in turn, what methodology you should use to extract meaningful information.

If you’re looking to learn more about exploratory data analysis (EDA), look no further than noted author, blogger and business analytics expert Kaiser Fung. In this seminar, Kaiser will explain how to find a story in a raw data set—to figure out which variables matter most and which relationships provide the most valuable insights for your organisation.

A master data visualiser, as his hit blog Junk Charts shows, Kaiser will demonstrate how a graphical approach to data is a critical part of EDA. Data visualization—when done right—can transform not only the way you present results to colleagues and other stakeholders in your organization, but also the way you explore and analyze the data itself.

In this seminar, Kaiser will present a series of cross-industry case studies that will showcase the ways in which exploratory data analysis enables you to get the most out of your data.

You will learn how to:

  • Identify the relationships and correlations in your data set that have implications for your work.
  • Design the methodology that best fits the data you have available.
  • Turn exploratory data analysis from a job requirement to a professional advantage.

We also invite you, if you’re attending in person, to join us for a complimentary networking lunch during which you’ll have the chance to continue the discussion with Kaiser as well as the other participants, and to network with those facing similar analytics challenges in their organisations.

Please feel free to forward this invitation to your colleagues and others in your organisation! We’ve heard from previous attendees that when they attend with their co-workers, the whole team benefits. And even if you can’t make it, perhaps one of you colleagues can.

This seminar will be of interest to scientists, engineers, business analysts, marketing analysts and anyone who wants to explore data using visual approaches.
