Course Overview

Analysing data empowers you to make better decisions. Data analysis is the term given to the process of evaluating data and translating it into information. It consists of data mining, statistical analysis, business analytics, descriptive and predictive analysis, and big data analytics.

It involves several stages including determining a data set, organising the data for handling, applying evaluation models, deriving key findings and generating reports from the processed data. The main objective of data analysis is to discover understandings that can be used in more effective decision making.

What will you learn from this particular Data Analysis training program? In this course, you will learn how to perform data analysis using Microsoft Excel’s most popular features.

Microsoft Excel is one of the most widely used tools for data analysis and its in-built pivot tables are possibly the most common analytics tool used by a range of professionals from beginners to those with advanced levels of experience. You will be taught how to create pivot tables from a collection with rows and columns in Excel.

You will find out the power of Excel pivots and their power to condense data in flexible ways, enabling rapid evaluation of data and creating useful insights from the collected data. Pivot tables and charts are used in many diverse industries by the masses who want to generate various types of reports relevant to the performance of their organisations.

They do so because, in Excel, formulas can be used easily to accumulate data and create meaningful information. In addition to pivot tables, pivot charts and slicers can also be used to visualise data and create user-friendly dashboards that depict data as readable information.

This Zoe training course will empower you with the ability to apply your new data analysis skills to business analytics, big data analytics, bioinformatics, and statistics.
