The Erasmus Center for Data Science and Business Analytics supports organizations in turning data into business solutions. The center
- offers knowledge and analytical skills to identify business opportunities in public and private data;
- develops methodologies to analyze and visualize data;
- helps organizations to exploit data-based insights and to develop and optimize business propositions based on data analytics;
- helps in data governance: integrate data solutions in the organization and manage data security.
The center helps companies to extract business value from their data. It also presents a platform for knowledge exchange, access to expertise, student interns, and offers research-based solutions and innovations.
The center distinguishes itself from other data science initiatives by its explicit focus on businesses. Organizing the information technology is an important skill, but turning data into business requires many additional skills. The center not only has the technical knowledge, but also in-depth knowledge of various business domains.
