Big Data is "big talk" these days. Computing power and the “Internet of Everything” has advanced dramatically over the last decade. In this informative 2-hour training, we discuss how to obtain and import data from a variety of internal and external free sources to improve their audits and help departments take those first steps towards the Big Data Revolution.
Specific learning objectives include:
- Understand how to maximize your own internal data before looking for external sources
- Review some of the top Big Data sources being utilized by finance professionals today
- Discover a world of free information on business partners and research the company in a sample case study format, using no more than an Internet browser.
- Combine structured accounting data analysis with unstructured textual analysis of words, combination of words, and emotive tones.
This 2-hour training includes downloadable templates, so you can follow along with the practical examples.
