Data and Analytics 2020 and beyond for Managers

Explorium HK

Although organizations are taking steps to manipulate data into insights, global surveys showed that businesses are still struggling with the quality of data and the problem of obtaining the right resources to turn these insights into the true value and become more data-driven. Expectations are that data analytics will create new possibilities, but we are still in the early stages of its development. Every organization seeks to create value, leverage opportunities, and avoid threats but only the quick-thinking and profitable organizations know how to effectively make use of their available data to unlock these insights and be ahead of the competition. What will be covered: Data and Analytics: Past, Present, and Future How big is the Big Data Driving force for Digital Transformation IoT Analytics, DataOps The influx of Data and Real Business issues Poor data can cost businesses 20%–35% of their operating revenue Security and Privacy in IoT Legislation dealing with nonhuman entities Self-service with lack of Governance Waves of future Data Visualization to Business Outcomes AI and Augmented Analytics -> Predictive to Prescriptive Self-Service moves to Self-evident AI, BI, and Data – who’s going to win BI and AI are indispensable Well-governed and centrally managed data wins 2020 to 2025 Data Management predictions AI, NLP, Data Governance Specialization of Job Roles Analytics / BI / Data Management Solutions Quick Peak into Leaders Quadrant for Analytics and BI Platforms, 2019 Critical Capabilities of an Analytics and BI Platform

How to Impress Your Boss with Tableau

Needs a location

**Please RSVP Here** https://xccelerate.co/events/how-to-impress-your-boss-with-tableau This will be a practical hands-on workshop This is an introductory session of Tableau, a state-of-the-art business intelligence tool, which would enable you to design dashboards and smart charts for your management. Using this tool, you will be able to transform a massive number of regular reports into consolidated charts powered with interactive data filtering, drill-through analysis and exception highlighting with ease. During the session, you will have hands-on practice with this software and will realize how more powerful it is, relative to using traditional spreadsheets. Having learnt even the basic Tableau functions, you will certainly have a WOW surprise! Reporting Needs of Various User Roles Loading Data into Tableau Dimensions and Measures Dimension Filtering Top-N Analysis Bar Chart, Line Chart and Scatter Plot Data Grouping Use of Sets for Focus Analysis Color Highlighting of Figures Drill-Down Feature Adding Totals and Percentages Simple Map Design Who Should Attend: Executives Data Analysts Sales / Marketing Analysts BI Developers General Excel Users Those interested in Impressing Your Boss with Your Charting Skills Equipment You are required to bring your own notebook computer (preferably installed Windows 10) The tutor will guide you to install Tableau Public which is free of charge

How to Build Interactive Websites Without JavaScript

Ooosh Coworking - Fortress Hill

**please rsvp here https://xccelerate.co/events/how-to-build-interactive-websites-without-javascript *** This is an introduction to making interactive websites without JavaScript. This event session is catered for developers who want to get the benefits of an interactive website, but without the pain of having to use JavaScript to accomplish it. Forget forcing people to click the refresh button and get the benefits of always having the most up to date information available to you and your customers as soon as you open up your web page. Get all of the benefits of a single page application without the headache that JavaScript brings. This technology is called Phoenix LiveView. Questions Covered How can I increase sales without overpromising to them? How to improve user interaction while maintaining good SEO? How can I stop people from overwriting others work without so much overhead? Target Audience People curious to Arduino but have difficulties making their project works only by following online examples. People with no coding experiences (not coding intensive). Hobbyists who have no prior electronics background who want to burn fewer electronics during tinkering. Designers who want to add an interactive display to their design like clothes, interactive exhibitions. Course Content Lecture regarding basic electronics principles and basic c coding. (30 minutes to 1 hour) Hands-on tinkering with Arduino. (1 hour to 2 hours) Industries Discussed Event Ticketing Game Development Business Intelligence

Intoduction to Arduino

R One Causeway Bay

Arduino is an open-source, single-board, micro-controller for hobbyists and designers to build interactive projects requiring feedback or measurement. This course is designed to teach hobbyists and designers the basic principles of electronic circuits, usages of the Arduino board to interface with a variety of electronic hardware, and software settings. The topics cover basic electronic circuits, C Programming and the basic operation of the Arduino board and sensors. By the end of this training, participants will be able to: Program Arduino as a simple system to make some light and noise with human interaction: Control ON/OFF, the intensity of Light and Noise Output of LED and buzzer, respectively. Use measurement functions of Arduino to trigger response, for example, hands, light intensity or human body temperature. Understand the possibilities to operate Arduino as a system with professional electronics components and interface, for example, LCD Display, Accelerometer, Temperature Sensor, Light Sensor, etc (Probably will do a full-scale demo of what an Arduino can achieve for more advanced function, like Computer Arduino User Interface, Data Logging, Control of Motor) (Need to discuss with potential students to see what they really want to do or accomplish, can also do circuit, coding, and demonstration in-situ.) Target Audience People curious to Arduino but have difficulties making their project works only by following online examples. People with no coding experiences (not coding intensive). Hobbyists who have no prior electronics background who want to burn fewer electronics during tinkering. Designers who want to add an interactive display to their design like clothes, interactive exhibitions. Course Content Lecture regarding basic electronics principles and basic c coding. (30 minutes to 1 hour) Hands-on tinkering with Arduino. (1 hour to 2 hours) What to Bring Laptop with USB connection, preferably windows (For discussion) Arduino with necessary components? *The introductory course is free, but the cost of materials should be paid, and students can keep their projects.* Material List: (300 HKD each person) Arduino Uno R3 or compatible Breadboard (Small) Pushbutton Temperature Sensor Potentiometer Buzzer Connection Wires
