Data Analytics

Data tells stories, solves problems and is the brain behind business. As a result, big data has created an overwhelming need for employers to have teams who can sift through data, make sense of it, and utilise it to support the customer experience, sales enablement, and strategic decision-making.

As a data analyst, you will have the power to increase efficiency and improve a company’s performance by learning to read data patterns. Work with complex datasets by advancing your programming skills, and use these skills for data manipulation, analysis and exploration. Our Data Analytics Programme is inclusive of the highly rated 3-month ALX Foundations module, preparing learners with the sought-after professional skills for today’s digital workforce.

"My desire to learn software engineering has always been strong. I started out by learning on my own, and a while later a relative of mine sent me a link to ALX. I visited the website and found Fred Swaniker's video where he discussed his ambitions. That gave me the push I needed to apply, and it turned out to be the best decision I have ever made."

What is the difference between data science and data analytics?

Data analytics refers to the process of examining large datasets to uncover patterns or notice trends. The main purpose of a data analyst is to find correlations between different sets of data.

Data scientists will develop algorithms and models that can help extract information from data sets in order to find actionable insights.
