Did NOT feel like an introduction at all. This is an in-depth overview of data analytics that I would recommend to anyone who wants to dip their toes in all things data. Tools from a wide range of providers are mentioned, not just from IBM.

At the risk of seeming basic or repetitive, from this course you can get some super structured notes on what it is, how it is managed and how useful data analytics is. Let's go for the next one, let's see how much the difficulty increases!

This was a very in depth explanation of what Data Analytics is. This course is not only teaching me concepts I did not learn in some of my college courses, but reinforcing some of those concepts I am learning in college as well.
