CIS 105 - Data Analysis & Analytics with Excel


Prerequisites: None
Excel has established itself as an important tool for the analysis of data and for the building of models that solve business problems. With the addition of the data mining toolbar, Excel becomes a tool for analyzing large, complex sets of data, while remaining within a software environment familiar to many business users. This course moves students from the fundamental skills of functions, graphing and various ways of manipulating, presenting and analyzing data - to the extremes of working with enormous quantities of data. These large datasets can be analyzed with data mining tools that have the potential of finding patterns and clusters of data that could provide a business with a strategic advantage. While we briefly discuss the underlying algorithms, our focus is on the use of tools to help a business make sense of the massive amounts of data generated by today’s digital environment.
