Under a Creative Commons license open access Abstract Big Data BDwith their potential to ascertain valued insights for enhanced decision-making process, have recently attracted substantial interest from both academics and practitioners.
Because practitioners of the statistical analysis often address particular applied decision problems, methods developments is consequently motivated by the search to a better decision making under uncertainties.
Decision making process under uncertainty is largely based on application of statistical data analysis for probabilistic risk assessment of your decision.
Managers need to understand variation for two key reasons. First, so that they can lead others to apply statistical thinking in day to day activities and secondly, to apply the concept for the purpose of continuous improvement.
This course will provide you with hands-on experience to promote the use of statistical thinking and techniques to apply them to make educated decisions whenever there is variation in business data. Therefore, it is a course in statistical thinking via a data-oriented approach.

Your organization database contains a wealth of information, yet the decision technology group members tap a fraction of it.
Employees waste time scouring multiple sources for a database. The decision-makers are frustrated because they cannot get business-critical data exactly when they need it. Therefore, too many decisions are based on guesswork, not facts. Many opportunities are also missed, if they are even noticed at all.
Knowledge is what we know well.
Information is the communication of knowledge. In every knowledge exchange, there is a sender and a receiver. The sender make common what is private, does the informing, the communicating. Information can be classified as explicit and tacit forms.
The explicit information can be explained in structured form, while tacit information is inconsistent and fuzzy to explain. Know that data are only crude information and not knowledge by themselves. Data is known to be crude information and not knowledge by itself. The sequence from data to knowledge is: Data becomes information, when it becomes relevant to your decision problem.
Information becomes fact, when the data can support it. Facts are what the data reveals. However the decisive instrumental i.national federation of independent business v.
