While I was taking Data Science, I learned how to make professional Data Visualizations using programs like Tableau. Overall, I learned the importance of Data Science and the impact it has in the corporate world.
What I found most interesting, and what I believe will be most relevant in my career, about Data Science is the level of understanding that comes with data visualization. Although numbers and statistics provide the same amount of information, visualization allows us to achieve a higher level of understanding and interpretation. Additionally, I learned in Data Science the difference between good and bad data. We identified errors and intentionally misleading data that would be used to exaggerate the information. These are the conceptual skills that will be used as the basis throughout my career and could even be applied to my personal life.
Intro to Management Information Systems:
I learned how to operate and create customer relationship management systems. Additionally, I learned the infrastructure of swim-lane diagrams and entity relationship diagrams.
This introductory class taught me the infrastructure of databases and how to operate salesforce. With this knowledge, I know how databases work and how to manage Customer Relationship Management software. Throughout my career, even if I don’t work or create these databases directly, I will still understand how their operations and use this information to better understand the logistics of the systems.
I learned how to extract and input data into databases using MYSQL. Furthermore, I learned how to operate R and RStudio in order to cluster, associate, and predict data.
Data Analytics taught me the first steps, in practice, that will allow me to be in control of the data. The skills used in this class can be applied everyday in my future career. MYSQL and R can be used daily for any operation that requires data. Additionally, R Studio can be even be used for basic levels of visualization. These programs are the basics for Data Visualization and interpretation that will be used daily in my career.
