This course introduces students to a range of tools, techniques and technologies used for acquiring data and processing it into meaningful information that can be used to support business functions and processes. Students will examine how data and information support business processes, the mechanisms to source and utilise data and turn it in to usable, and valuable, information output. Students will explore real-world business problems, the emergence of data science and how the application of data science can be used to support business processes. Finally, students will demonstrate practical application of data science techniques to support real-world business problems.

On successful completion of this course, students will appreciate the importance and value of data and information in terms of optimising decision making and performance. By exploring the tools, techniques and systems that support business processes, students will be aware of the role and contribution of these technologies and methodologies, and their importance to organisations. As a result, students will develop skills such as communication literacy, critical thinking, analysis, reasoning and interpretation, which are crucial for gaining employment and developing academic competence.

By the end of this course a student will be able to:

  1. Discuss the use of data and information to support business processes and the value they have for an identified organisation.
  2. Discuss the implications of the use of data and information to support business processes in a real-world scenario.
  3. Explore the tools and technologies associated with data science and how it supports business processes.
  4. Demonstrate the use of data science techniques to make recommendations to support real-world business problems.
