Cloud-Based Business Data Analytics

Graduate Certificate

In the business world, cloud analytics is a marketing term for conducting analysis using cloud computing. Businesses or other entities use a public or private cloud to access technological and analytical tools, including massive data warehouses and information-retrieval business intelligence software, to conduct data analysis or other business intelligence processes. Cloud-based analytics make it easier to access ever-larger amounts of data, better sharing and collaboration, and quicker paths to insight. 

The IU Online Graduate Certificate in Cloud-based Business Data Analytics merges state-of-the-art course materials developed by Microsoft using a dbPaaS platform with a conceptual framework provided by Kelley School of Business faculty. This combination provides the real-world skills necessary to participate in the corporate digital transformation. You learn to define and explain data analytics processes using cloud-based modeling tools and processes, and you hone your ability to interpret and apply conclusions to industry case problems.

  • Software developer
