Using Excel to “Pivot” to Data Analytics and Data Science
Data Science is the hottest career path for new grads and career changers alike – and today’s hottest training opportunity. But existing professionals may find it’s a challenge to jump from the Excel they know well into the specialized suite of native Data Science tools.
In 2020, Logical Operations is going to offer a new 2-day class, Data Analysis and Visualization with Microsoft® Excel®, expressly designed to bring current Excel users right to the edge of Excel’s data-analysis capabilities and get them eager to pivot into Data Science with Tableau, Power BI, Python, and beyond.
Your learners with workplace Excel experience can start their Data Science journey with Data Analysis and Visualization with Microsoft® Excel® rather than a 3-day MOS-aligned path. Plus, it’s a great alternative for students who might otherwise consider the 3-day Microsoft Course 20779B: Analyzing Data with Excel®.
LO’s course topics will include data analysis and visualization theory and practice; formulas and functions for analysis; statistics and data modeling; data transformation; Excel dashboard creation; and more.
And speaking of dashboards, look for Microsoft® Excel® for Office 365™: Dashboards in 2020, too. This popular 1-day option is perfect for learners who want dashboarding proficiency but who aren’t candidates (yet) for expanded Data Science skills. And it’s a great alternative to the 2-day Microsoft Course 10994B: Data Analysis Fundamentals using Excel®.
With so many options, get in touch with your LO account representative to help guide your customers through this crucial pivot point from the desktop to Data Science.
