Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

The course focuses on the how cloud computing and data analytics are affecting business models through classroom lecture/discussion, industry guest speakers, team collaboration, individual assignments, and outside study.  It is designed to inform students and arm them with relevant, highly-current information needed about shared resource computing and large data sets as they lead their organizations.  After taking this course, a student who is in a more traditional, non-technical business management role will be able to hold a knowledgeable and informed conversation with his/her firm's CIO when discussing the usage/enablement of cloud computing resources. The course will enable students to make informed business management decisions that are affected by an understanding of the technology enabling new business capabilities. The emphasis throughout the course is on the understanding of how cloud computing technology is affecting the marketplace and consumer behavior.  Secondary emphasis will be on how organizations can use these new technologies to their advantage, either through new product/service offerings or new organizational capabilities.  The course is designed to learn managerial consumption of large data sets and understand how those results were produced in order to make data-driven decisions.  We will discuss a framework for developing a data set, analyzing it, and generating meaningful insights. This framework will allow students to identify the opportunities, as well as perils that arise from the tsunami of data being produced. A hands-on exercise will further enhance these learnings to understand how large data sets can be used to gain business insights and not just taken as another reference point more commonly associated with traditional data analysis. Industry guest speakers will be an integral part of the course to present current and real-world scenarios given the recentness of the technologies and the rapid pace of market disruption they cause.
