Building on the course content of Environmental Analytics I, this course retains a managerial focus rather than a technical one. Students do not need a statistics or analytics background. It is designed to prepare managers to identify and obtain a publicly available data set (or one from their own organization), suitable to use for carrying out an analytics project, often the pilot project identified in the previous course. In addition, the course goes into the next level of detail on analytical algorithms and cloud technologies to enable students to frame the questions to be answered or insights revealed from running an analytics application. Finally, the course provides an introduction to cognitive computing and its applications, trends, and potential impacts. Prerequisite: EPM 4610.
