ITM 535 Module 2 - SLP Data Quality and Data Integration (Coursework Sample)
Module 2 - SLP
Data Quality and Data Integration
The purpose of the Session Long Project in Trident University classes is to give you the opportunity to explore the applicability of the Module to your own life, work, and place in space and time, and to experiment with the Module to see how the otherwise academically rigorous presentation of a topic may, with more or less work and/or trauma, become "up close and personal". This is done in a number of different ways—sometimes cumulative papers, sometimes practical hands-on experimentation with a tool of some sort, sometimes reflections on a place of work or life. The common thread is personal application, aimed at demonstrating a cumulative knowledge and understanding of the course's material.
For this course, the Project will take the form of encounters with online tools and resources of several forms. Each Module will feature some website to visit, occasionally some tool to download and experiment with, or some demo to experience, in search of enlightenment about the kinds of resources available to IT professionals in our increasingly information-rich but sometimes painfully crowded professional community. It's almost inevitable that for any given Module, some of the class members will already have had experience with the "tool of choice"; when it happens to you, please resist the temptation to lay into the faculty with a claim that we're not teaching you anything new; we assure you that even if it's known to you, it is NOT known to a good many of your colleagues, and they'll be glad for the lead. If you do have such experience, regard it as a minor gift of time from the Powers in charge of Session Long Projects; the write-up will be a piece of cake for you. You can use your spare time to dig further into another site or tool, or even to use the Threaded Discussion forum to share your experience and evaluations with your colleagues.
Most online demo sites, when we encounter them, will require you to enter a name and an email address by way of registration; if this bothers you, try using a pseudonym and a convenience free email account from Hotmail or Yahoo, or just try some other one. All they want is a place to send a password, generally. It is also possible that you will receive follow-up inquiries from sites that you have visited; if this concerns you, please read our policy note on this issue.
Each Module, then, you'll be directed toward some resource; your task will be to enter and/or use it, form some conclusions, questions, and ideas about its possibilities, and to write up those thoughts for our review. The general format for the write-up is found here. You'll be assessed on the degree of effort and enthusiasm you appear to invest in the exercise, the accuracy of your descriptions and the salience of your conclusions, your ability to generalize and to place the tool in a context of both the material for that Module and other similar sorts of tools from other sources , and the degree to which you involve yourself in making this a useful part of your education. All the good stuff, in short!
If you work in an area subject to security clearances and regulations, or if the computer to which you have access is restricted in critical ways in terms of what you are at liberty to download and use (because of capacity, policy and/or security rules, or other factors) then your ability to carry out the assignments as presented may somewhat compromised. Never Fear! TUI is known for its flexibility and ability to reconfigure assignments imaginatively, and we stand ready to help you here as well! Please review our policy on assignments and national security. Alternatives are available, and while you'll miss some of the learning benefits of the assignment, you can still get a substantial measure. Please let your instructor know as soon as you can if you will be operating under any sort of limitations on your computing capacity, so that you can work out suitable arrangements.
In addition, it is a good idea to be sure that your computer is appropriately protected from the bad Guys Out There. There are some security precautions that are particularly important to observe before setting out on any Internet excursion, including these projects. Please review our set of recommendations about ensuring the security of your computer and try to implement them if possible before you undertake any of these exercises.
So—that's the general SLP strategy. If you have questions at any point about what to do or how to strategize your exercise, please contact your instructor for illumination.
You'll remember that we're using a common basic format for the Project assignments in all Modules—that is, the review of relevant software demos.
SLP Assignment Expectations
Specifically, for the Session Long Project for this Module:
Like Module 1, go to the free demos found at http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/download/byproduct.jsp
Again, select “Business Intelligence” and review the demos you did not review during Module 1. Make sure you include summary statements and comparisons along with other comments in “Cumulative Learning.”
Your assignment will be evaluated based on the Rubric.
Provide a valid URL for each reference used. The URL should go directly to the body of work.
ITM 535 Module 2 - SLPData Quality and Data Integration
Watson Analytics allows the users to discovery of the power of analytics, and integrates visualization to improve business intelligence (BI) to further get insight into how data is structured and used in the business world. Since Watson Analytics integrates cloud-based data and it is effective in mined data and predictive analytics to determine the future events and assess the strength of such predictions. As Watson Analytics is essential in predictions the demo demonstrates how the system improves features than the other statistical software. The use of interactive graphics integrates the visual interface for graphical representation of data.
In integrating analytics, with cognitive computing Watson Analytics is essential when dealing with a lot of data as there is a need to access information that can easily. Data is available to anyone and not only the data scientists and access to the information has been valuable to using advanced analytics. In adopting the data analytics software it is possible to personalize the data, and unlike before where analysts used samples the access of big data using the program provides better insight on what is being studied. Additionally, prediction is easier with big data as Watson Analytics facilitates the rapid analysis of data.
As users interact with the data, they place the analysis in context and they may even import a spreadsheet to facilitate the data analysis. With the Watson predictive analytics both structured and unstructured data can be analyzed, and this is consistent with IBM
