Career Prospects in Business Analytics: Webinar organized by Department of Management, BITS Pilani – Pilani Campus
The business environment is rapidly changing globally. Successful organizations can change the dynamics effectively and quickly. The 2020 pandemic demanded unprecedented advancements in technology fronts for businesses to survive. In order to meet the changing customers needs and wants, firms need to become more innovative and agile in their functioning. Data has emerged as a critical differentiating factor in these uncertain times. Cloud services provider DOMO estimates that in 2020, each person generated around 1.7 MB of data per second. In fact, around 90% of the data generated in the last two years is estimated to be all available today. However, the biggest problem with such data is that the majority of such information is unstructured. If companies wish to make use of such data, they need to invest in advanced business analytics techniques to make sense of the vast tapestry of data.
Understanding the need for awareness about the rapidly growing field of business analytics, Department of Management, BITS Pilani – Pilani Campus invited the Country Manager (India) of Tableau Software, Mr. Anand Ekambaram to interact with the MBA students, faculty members and prospective candidates aspiring to pursue their career in business analytics.
