Data Analytics: What it is, and why it matters

You see lots of job postings.  It’s almost like the “must have toy” of the decade.  Every organization is getting or growing its data analytics capabilities; but why?   What is it, how is it done, how does it impact Records Management and other information governance controls and how can I learn how to do it?  Join ARMA Greater Cincinnati Chapter to learn more about this growing discipline that is part IT, part Sherlock Holmes, and part statistician.
