ANALYTICS AND
INTELLIGENCE
(Batch 5)
(Classes conducted on-campus as well
as off-campus)
Course Starting: 29 June 2014
Application Deadline: Early Decision 28 February 2014
Regular Decision 15 April 2014
T
he theory of bounded rationality
proposed by Nobel Laureate Herbert
Simon is evermore signifcant today
with increasing complexity of the business
problems; limited ability of human mind
to analyze alternative solutions and the
limited time available for decision making.
Introduction of enterprise resource
planning (ERP) systems has ensured
availability of data in many organizations;
however, traditional ERP systems
lacked data analysis capabilities that
can assist the management in decision
making. Business Analytics is a set of
techniques and processes that can be
used to analyse data to improve business
performance through fact-based decision
making. Business Analytics is the subset
of Business Intelligence, which creates
capabilities for companies to compete
in the market effectively. Business
Analytics is likely to become one of the
main functional areas in most companies.
Analytics companies develop the ability to
support their decisions through analytic
reasoning using a variety of statistical
and mathematical techniques. Thomas
Devonport in his book titled, Competing
on analytics: The new science of winning,
claims that a signifcant proportion of
high-performance companies have high
analytical skills among their personnel.
On the other hand, a recent study has
also revealed that more than 59% of the
organizations do not have information
required for decision-making.
In a recent article
1
based on a survey
of nearly 3000 executives, MIT Sloan
Management Review reported that
there is striking correlation between an
organizations analytics sophistication
and its competitive performance. The
biggest obstacle to adopting analytics
is the lack of knowhow about using it to
improve business performance. Business
Analytics uses statistical, operations
research and management tools to drive
business performance. Many companies
offer similar kind of products and services
to customers based on similar design
and technology and fnd it diffcult to
differentiate their product/service from
their competitors. However, companies

Certifcate Programme on Business Analytics and Intelligence
BATCH 5
In God We Trust, All Others Must Bring Data
- W Edwards Deming
such as Amazon, Google, HP, Netfix,
Proctor and Gamble and Capital One
uses analytics as competitive strategy.
Business Analytics helps companies to
fnd the most proftable customer and
allows them to justify their marketing
effort, especially when the competition
is very high. Predictive analytics helps
organizations to predict churn, default in
loan payment, brand switch, insurance
loss and even the outcome in a football
match. There is signifcant evidence
from the corporate world that the ability
to make better decisions improves with
analytical skills. This course is designed to
provide in-depth knowledge of business
analytic techniques and their applications
in improving business processes and
decision-making.
Course objectives
The course is designed to provide in-
depth knowledge of handling data and
Business Analytics tools that can be used
for fact-based decision-making using real
case studies. At the end of the course,
the participants will be able to:
Understand the emergence of business
analytics as a competitive strategy.
Analyse data using statistical and data
mining techniques and understand
relationships between the underlying
business processes of an organization.
Learn data visualization and storytelling
through data.
Learn decision-making tools/Operations
Research techniques.
Use advanced analytical tools to analyse
complex problems under uncertainty.
Manage business processes using
analytical and management tools.
Use analytics in customer requirement
analysis, general management,
marketing, fnance, operations and
supply chain management.
Understand sources of Big Data and
the technologies and algorithms for
analysing big data for inferences.
Ability to analyse unstructured data
such as social media data and machine
generated data.
Analyse and solve problems
from different industries such as
manufacturing, service, retail,
software, banking and fnance, sports,
pharmaceutical, aerospace etc.
Hands on experience with software
such as Microsoft Excel, Evolver,
LINDO, Qlikview, SAS Enterprise Miner,
SPSS, R, @RISK and other proprietary

Course Design
The course consists of eight modules and
a project. The duration of each module
is usually 5-6 days except for module
2 (1 day) and module 7 (2 days). There
will be 4 tutorial sessions on problem
solving using analytics in addition to the 8
modules. There is an optional module on,
Applied Analytics using SAS Enterprise
Miner which shall be conducted by SAS
Institutes analytical consultants and is
mapped on to the international predictive
modelling certifcation using SAS
enterprise miner. The modules and their
contents are discussed in the following
paragraphs. Case-based teaching will
be used for all the modules using case
studies from IIMB, Harvard Business
School (HBS), Darden, Ivey, and Kellogg.
Signifcant proportion of the cases used in
the course are published by IIMB faculty
at the Harvard Business Publishing. A
few of them are actually published by the
students from the previous batches based
on their project work.
Module 1: Data Visualization and
Interpretation (6 days)
The process of fact-based decision-
making requires managers to know how
to summarize, analyse, interpret and
communicate data using data visualization
techniques to facilitate decision-making.
Statistical analysis is a fundamental
method of quantitative reasoning that is
extensively used for decision-making. This
module is aimed at providing participants
with the most often used methods of
statistical analysis along with appropriate
statistical tests. The module is oriented
towards application without compromising
the theoretical aspects.
Data Visualization and Interpretation
Module Contents
Different types of data; Data
summarization and visualization
methods; Tables, Graphs, Charts,
Histograms, Frequency distributions,

Module 2: Data Preparation and
Imputation (1 day)
Quality of the data is important for success
of any analytics project. Anecdotal
evidence suggests that more than 80% of
the analytics project time is spent on data
preparation and data imputation. In this
short module we will be discussing data
preparation and imputation techniques
before advanced analytics tools can be
used.
Contents: Data quality check, data
cleaning and imputation.
Module 3: Predictive Analytics
(5 Days)
Predictive analytics search for patterns
found in historical and transactional data
to understand a business problem and
predict future events. In many business
problems, we try to deal with data on
several variables, sometime more than
the number of observations. Regression
models help us understand the
relationships among these variables and
how the relationships can be exploited to
make decisions. Primary objective of this
module is to understand how regression
and causal forecasting models can be
used to analyse real-life business problems
such as prediction, classifcation and
discrete choice problems. The focus will
be case-based practical problem-solving
using predictive analytics techniques to
interpret model outputs. The participants
will be exposed to software tools such as
MS Excel, R, SPSS, and SAS and how
to use these software tools to perform
regression, logistic regression and
forecasting.

Module 5: Stochastic Models
(Marketing and Retail Analytics)
Stochastic models offer a powerful
analytical approach to model and examine
complex problems in the domains of
fnance, retail, marketing, operations
and economics under uncertainty. In
management as well as in business,
many measurements change with time
and are inherently random in nature.
Stochastic models can be used to model
and measure changes in metrics used for
fnance, marketing, operations, supply
chain, etc. over a period of time. The
objective of this module is to provide an
introduction to stochastic processes
and their applications to business and
management. Our approach will be non-
