Business analytics is the process in which data is obtained, cleaned, and presented by teams and organisations to drive useful predictions and insights. Two ways in which businesses do this is through SQL and Python. SQL, or Structured Query Language, is a query that extracts data from tables within a database. Python, on the other hand, is a programming language that has data analysis libraries built on top of it, allowing for data to be analysed and manipulated in order to tell compelling stories and drive business decisions.
With the opportunity to work on your own data set, or with a data set provided, now’s the perfect time to roll up your sleeves and get hands on with SQL and Python. Develop the critical data wrangling, exploring, analysing, and communication of data skills that will make you highly desirable in the industry.
