More Than a Wizard

We asked Brad Shimmin, a principal analyst at Current Analysis, for his take on the new course offerings. He told us online big data courses are an emerging trend at the university level.

This is a response to a growing opportunity and concern by vendors and enterprise customers alike that some of the capabilities that we’re now putting into the hands of enterprise users are perhaps outstripping their ability to make the most out of those technologies or even make the appropriate use of those technologies,” Shimmin explains.

From Shimmin’s perspective, business users crave big data and analytics tools, but without an understanding of what makes data good or bad they may make decisions based on insight that’s fallacious. With that in mind, he said programs like the one MIT is rolling out are an important step for the industry.

“This type of program should be a requirement in any enterprise where you have business users interacting with data. They should be savvy in understanding the right questions to ask,” Shimmin said. “Whether or not the data they are inspecting is clean and correct and being able to understand how best to position the outcome from a question they might pose using that data is important. Mastering that takes more than a simple wizard.”
