Webinar – Discover What’s Hiding in Your Data With Exploratory Data Analysis
Some argue that the most crucial step in analysing data is the very first one: exploratory analysis. When you first receive a new data set, nothing is more important than the initial exploratory work you undertake to better understand what you’re looking at – and, in turn, what approach you should use to extract meaningful information.
If you’re in search of new insights about exploratory data analysis (EDA), look no further than noted data visualisation expert Jorge Camoes. Perhaps best known as author of the popular blog ExcelCharts, Camoes is regarded as an innovator in the world of EDA and a true Excel guru. His insightful book Data at Work challenges our preconceptions by exploring new ways to think about and organize data.
Date: 26 October 2017
Time: 09:30 – 12:40
In this on-line seminar, Camoes will explain how to find a story in a raw data set – to figure out which variables matter most and which relationships provide the most valuable insights for your organisation. A master data visualiser, Camoes will demonstrate how a graphical approach is a critical part of EDA. Data visualisation (when done right) can transform not only the way you present results to colleagues and other stakeholders in your organization, but also the way you explore and analyse the data itself.
Camoes will be joined by Ian Cox, statistical expert from JMP. Together, they will present a series of cross-industry case studies that will showcase the ways in which EDA enables you to get the most out of your data.
You will learn how to:
– Identify the relationships and correlations in your data set that have implications for your work.
– Use an approach that best fits the data you have available.
– Turn exploratory data analysis from a job requirement to a professional advantage.
This seminar will be of interest to scientists, engineers, business analysts, marketing analysts and anyone who wants to explore data using visual approaches.
Please feel free to forward this invitation to your colleagues and others in your organisation! We’ve heard from previous attendees that when they attend with their co-workers, the whole team benefits. And even if you can’t make it, perhaps one of your colleagues can.
