Data Analytics is the process of gathering, preparing and examining data sets in order to model the data to draw conclusions and identify patterns to support decision making.This session will provide an overview of what data analytics is and what is available today, discuss some of the dangers, give some ideas on ways to get started with data analytics. This will be expanded by describing what it takes to do data science in an operating company and practically the engineers view of data and how take advantage of the opportunities it presents. To assist engineers position themselves and their organisations we will peer into the future and consider what that future holds.Some detailed case studies on applying data analytics in engineering organisations will conclude the evening.
