About Program

In today’s highly uncertain world, every organization is at the edge of survival. To gain competitive advantage, it is pivotal to take ‘right’ decisions before your competitors, and this is possible only through data enabled learning. Data analytics can aid organizations to confidently experiment, innovate, and compete. The pandemic has pushed every organization to become insight driven. As per IDC, the worldwide spending on big data and business analytics has witnessed a 10.1% increase in 2021, compared to the 2020, and the trend is expected to continue at least for the next 5 years.
