MIS 2101-001, Information Systems in Organizations, Professor E. Carey O’Donnell

In this course, I learned about the basics of Management Information Systems. A few examples of some of the topics covered include supply chain management, swim-lane diagrams, Google analytics, and covering the basics of how to read and interpret data.

The work done in this course has contributed greatly to my education of Management Information Systems. Working in Salesforce was able to give me the basic skills of how to use a complex data base in order to store information’s in one system. It was also able to show me all the different tools a database can offer in order to better the system you are trying to implement. I was able to practice entering sales meetings, sales transactions, and schedule for upcoming appointments. I was able to build off of previously created data and improve on skills I had learned before.

Below are some screenshots from projects done in the cloud-based software designer SalesForce. The majority of the class took place utilizing this tool, doing small projects on the website to build off of what we created each week.

 

MIS 2502-002, Data Analytics, Professor Shuting Wang

In this course, I learned to use the applications MySQLWorkbench, RStudio, and RScript. We touched on topics of how to interpret graphs and charts to determine their validity.

We also did Temple University’s Data Analytics Challenge and did multiple projects on Microsoft Excel.

All three of these applications helped me with starter coding and package building. I was able to practice writing short codes then running them in the system to see the outcomes the system was able to produce. These systems also significantly helped me learn how to interpret the large amounts of data they are able to produce. The Excel projects helped me build off my Microsoft Excel skills and learn more about that application and the vast amounts of procedures it can carry out. Reading the data and figuring out what it meant was able to contribute to my education in data analytics.

Below is a link to a  sample of a decision tree I was able to create with RStudio.

This coursework will immensely contribute to me furthering my Management Information Systems career; it was the start of software implementation and interpretation. I will be able to build off of the beginner code I was able to learn.
