The industry is also investigating on various applications that can streamline the valuable information for analytics processes and making the data collection simple and efficient. The industry is expected to be worth over $128 billion by 2022, a predicted 36 per cent growth from 2016. With the Data Analytics Industry becoming dynamic, the prospects for someone looking to make Data Science as their career are high.
Although the amount of collected data is impressive, the data is useless without it is being analyzed and insights leading transformation. Without enough manpower to work out on the information, it is pointless collecting the data in the first place. Businesses are also starting to react to the data scientist shortage and are collaborating with other firms and educational establishments to close the gap before it becomes too large. Through this course, we have focused on the practical challenges that organizations are experiencing by merging disciplines to develop a teaching programmed that makes the link between business, management and data analytics.

Project 1: Products recommendation prediction for AliBaba
Recommendation engines proved to be of great use for the retailers as the tools for customers’ behavior prediction. The retailers tend to use recommendation engines as one of the main leverages on the customers’ opinion. Providing recommendations enables the retailers to increase sales and to dictate trends. Alibaba, one of the leading US-based e-commerce companies, recommends products within the same category to customers based on their activity and reviews on other similar products. Alibaba would like to improve this recommendation engine by predicting ratings for the non-rated products and add them to recommendations accordingly.
Project 2: Improving customer experience for Telekom Malaysia
Description: Telekom Malaysia, one of the leading Malaysian-based telecommunication company that has been monopolising the Malaysian market telecommunication sector wants to improve customer experience by identifying and acting on problem areas that lower customer satisfaction. The company is also looking for key recommendations that can be implemented to deliver the best customer experience.
Project 3: Customer churn prevention
Acquiring a customer is a challenging task. Keeping the customer engaged requires a lot of effort as well. Accurate diagnosis of the customer's behavior and enabling alerts highlight the customers at a risk defecting. Smart data platforms can bring together customer transactions data and data from real-time communication streams to disclose the insights concerning customers feelings about the services. This allows immediate addressing the satisfaction-related issues and churn prevention.
Project 4: Attrition Analysis for Hershey
Attrition in human resources refers to the gradual loss of employees over time. In general, relatively high attrition is problematic for companies. HR professionals often assume a leadership role in designing company compensation programs, work culture and motivation systems that help the organization retain top employees. Looking into how Hershey Used Data to Increase Retention Rates and Improve Workforce Planning by using workforce data to create a predictive retention model that helps identify flight risks at an individual and macro scale, allowing them to boost retention with targeted support and plan their talent needs months ahead of time to ensure they’re fully staffed when they need it most.
Project 5: IBM, one of the leading US-based IT companies, would like to identify the factors that influence attrition of employees. Based on the parameters identified, the company would also like to build a logistics regression model that can help predict if an employee will churn or not.
Project 5: Predict accurate sales for all stores of FashionValet, one of the leading Malaysian leading retail stores, considering the impact of promotional markdown campaigns. Check if macroeconomic factors like CPI, unemployment rate, etc. have an impact on sales
FashionValet runs several promotional markdown campaigns throughout the year. The markdowns precede prominent public holidays, such as all festivities in Malaysia. The weeks including these holidays are weighed five times higher in valuation than non-holiday weeks. The business is facing a challenge due to unforeseen demand, resulting in stocks running out at times due to inaccurate demand estimation. The macroeconomic factors like CPI, Unemployment Index, etc. also play an important role in predicting the demand, but the business hasn’t been able to leverage these factors yet. As a part of this project, create a model to highlight the effects of markdowns on holiday weeks.
Project 6: Learn how to Healthcare industry leaders make use of Big Data to leverage their business with the use of predictive analytics tools and obtain quick diagnosis to avoid readmissions or faster treatments.
Predictive analytics can be used in healthcare to mediate hospital readmissions with having insignt on quick diagnosis. In healthcare and other industries, predictors are most useful when they can be brought into action. This is vital for the prediction of inherited diseases. For instance, the patients at risk of developing a specific disease (e.g. diabetes) can benefit from preventive care with the use of fitness trackers and smartwatches to colelct and analyse information aout their heart rhythm and physical activity. As a result, this process is able to help doctors or medical specialists create flexible databases. After that, a computer with artificial experience may make suggestions for each patient according to the information collected from other human beings. Performing an analysis of information collected by trackers by neural networks allows patients to figure out the disease which as a result, patients can take in-time measures to predict and prevent it. Now using Big Data doctors are able to predict the results of their treatment, considering what kind of lifestyle the patient leads.
Project 6: Understand how the Insurance leaders like Berkshire Hathaway, AIG, AXA, etc. make use of Data Science by working on a real-life project based on Insurance.
Use of predictive analytics has increased greatly in insurance businesses, especially for the biggest companies, according to the 2013 Insurance Predictive Modeling Survey. While the survey showed an increase in predictive modeling throughout the industry, all the respondents from companies that write over $1 billion in personal insurance employ predictive modeling, compared to 69% of companies with less than that amount of premium.
