Study Content

  • The analysis of data has a central role in the modern information society.
  • Organisations in both the public and private sector are collecting vast data sets, and an increasing amount of public sector data is made open.
  • However, data – assumed to be an important asset for organisations – is useless unless it is analysed.
  • Analysis is required to find regularities, such as trends or groupings, and to relate the data to other data sets within an organisation or in scattered online repositories.
