Tableau, Swinburne offer course in analytics, data visualisation

By

Analytics software firm Tableau Software has joined with Swinburne Institute of Technology on a hands-on course in business analytics and data visualisation.

The course will be on offer through Swinburne's Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship as part of the Master of Digital Business Management degree.

A statement cited what was the apparent logic behind creating course: a study from the Institute of Analytics Professionals Australia which claimed workers who had better data literacy would earn more.

The study said analytics professionals, including data scientists, would pull in median salaries of $130,000, a good bit above the average median salary of $84,000.

During the course, students will have a foundation unit in business analytics which included an introduction to self-service analytics for businesses, critical evaluation of the role of tools and platforms in data analytics, business analytics reporting, data storytelling and data visualisation.

Tableau Software has jointly helped to create the module and will provide guest speakers, deploy software for students to use during classes and take part in assessing student work.

MDBM course director Dr Paul Scifleet said: “By collaborating with Tableau to teach business analytics and visualisation, we are shifting data science from an inaccessible horizon of future work to the desktop of today’s postgraduate management students.

"As leaders of digital change, they are learning how to ask the right questions of data, to better inform the decisions they make to address current, real world and applied business needs.”

The MDBM, launched earlier this year, and includes units on new and emerging technologies and business models, incorporating cyber security, business innovation and transformation, information systems principles in enterprise IT architecture, digital asset management, IT and data governance, systems development and professional IT services management.

Tableau's ANZ country manager Nigel Mendonca said: “The demand for talent with data literacy skills continues to rise in Australia, and with severe shortages in this area there is a burning need to look at ways to narrow this gap.

"Collaboration between the government, private sector and educators is essential to up-skill the workforce of today and embed data literacy in the workforce of tomorrow.

"We look forward to working with Swinburne to empower more Australians with analytics skills to make rapid, insightful decisions at a time where the growth in data is exploding and will continue to do so in the years ahead.”
