An effective data analytics strategy in any organisation needs a program to build organisational awareness around data; its ethical use, understanding, acceptance and its place in the daily conversation of what matters at all levels. Our Data Culture Curriculum begins with critical thinking as a foundational skill, then focuses on data literacy and awareness of its purpose for strategic insight. The program is often used to provide essential, foundational knowledge to build a ‘data culture’ that supports digital transformation efforts across the organisation.
AlphaZetta’s workshops and courses are like none other offered in universities, online or by private providers. They are also as much a compressed mentoring experience as they are content delivery; they are not easy for an average trainer to replicate.

This course is a vital first step in the data literacy journey, and the one that introduces the most vital and basic skills of the effective 21st century professional or leader. Working with data is not just about manipulating software tools : it is first and foremost about effective reasoning, using all available information. As such, this course loads the key “software” into the most vital hardware of the business - the human professional, enabling them to reason effectively with data, and thus realise the value that data analytics promises, deriving more reliable and correct insights and making better decisions.
This course is for workers and managers without a strong quantitative background. It introduces a range of skills and applications related to data literacy for digital transformations and critical thinking in such areas as forecasting, population measurement, set theory and logic, causal impact and attribution, scientific reasoning and the danger of cognitive biases. There are no prerequisites beyond high-school mathematics; this course has been designed to be approachable for everyone.
This two day course provides an informed, realistic and comprehensive foundation for establishing best practice data governance in your organisation. Suitable for every level from CDO to executive to data steward, this highly practical course will equip you with the tools and strategies needed to successfully create and implement a data governance strategy and roadmap.
Social networking via Web 2.0 applications such as LinkedIn and Facebook has created huge interest in understanding the connections between individuals to predict patterns of churn, influencers related to early adoption of new products and services, successful pricing strategies for certain kinds of services, and customer segmentation. We will explain how to use these advanced analytic techniques with mini case studies across a wide range of industries including telecommunications, financial services, health care, retailing, and government agencies.
In this workshop, we explore best practices in deriving insight from vast amounts of data using visualisation techniques. Examples from traditional data as well as an in-depth look at the underlying technologies for visualisation in support of geospatial analytics will be undertaken. We will examine visualisation for both strategic and operational BI.
The effective management of enterprise information for analytics deployment requires best practices in the areas of people, processes, and technology. In this talk we will share both successful and unsuccessful practices in these areas. The scope of this workshop will involve five key areas of enterprise information management: (1) metadata management, (2) data quality management, (3) data security and privacy, (4) master data management, and (5) data integration.
This full-day workshop examines the trends in analytic technologies, methodologies, and use cases. The implications of these developments for deployment of analytic capabilities will be discussed with examples in future architecture and implementation. This workshop also presents best practices for deployment of next generation analytics.
Blockchain is one of the most disruptive and least understood technologies to emerge over the previous decade. This course gives participants an intuitive understanding of blockchain in both public and private contexts, allowing them to distinguish genuine use cases from hype. We explore public crypto-currencies, smart contracts and consortium chains, interspersing theory with case studies from areas such as financial markets, health care, trade finance, and supply chain. The course does not require a technical background.
This one day course builds on the foundation of Data Governance I, and dives deeper into selected areas that are designed to provide the most practical and real-world applications of data governance.

R is the world’s most popular data mining and statistics package. It’s also free, and easy to use, with a range of intuitive graphical interfaces.
Python is a high-level, general-purpose language used by a thriving community of millions. Data-science teams often use it in their production environments and analysis pipelines, and it’s the tool of choice for elite data-mining competition winners and deep-learning innovations. This course provides a foundation for using Python in exploratory data analysis and visualisation, and as a stepping stone to machine learning.
All participants in digital transformation will need to be digital business case literate in an automated, decision-focused future. This course is designed to increase non-expert level ability to competently turn data into concise data storytelling. It teaches you how to apply the right numbers to transform the story into a business benefit calculation, so that both parts are well understood by technical and business decision makers within a company. This course covers a broad range of business skills, including telling a concise story based on data (business storytelling), techniques to simplify and abstract complex situations and sharpening data stories to apply financial figures to the resulting business case.
