GB 852 - Advanced Analytics

(3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: GB 851 .  

This advanced course provides a more in-depth coverage of the technical aspects of each of the modeling tools discussed in previous courses. Furthermore, this course expands students' knowledge set to techniques such as optimization, risk management, and new types of data visualizations that streamline the visual presentation of large, complex datasets in order to support better business decision making. These techniques are demonstrated using many of today's leading analysis tools including NoSQL, Hadoop, Hive, Shark, R, Apache, and Google BigQuery. These technologies form the core of an open-source software framework that supports the processing of large datasets, visualizing data, building dashboards, and choosing tools for statistical analyses. Application of these techniques to National Security concerns is also examined. Students apply analytics to their organization's datasets or to a dataset provided by the instructor.
