For this assignment you are required to study the business analytics practices of a real company. You can choose any of the discussed areas in this course.
On the chosen topic and company, you are required to:
- Provide background information regarding the company including: size, business type, areas of operations, competitors etc. If you have collected the data from the websites and you don’t know the company information, you can discuss here who can benefit from your analysis and who can use your analysis in decision making. Some useful webpages would be:
- Provide detailed information about the chosen topic, including the collected data and the significance of the problem.
- Collect real data for the chosen topic, and then show the current status of the company in the chosen topic.
- Provide a solution to improve the performance.
Please be advised that your report must contain a comparative analysis and not just describe the current practices in the company. In other words, you need to compare the existing and current practices with the model/practices that you are proposing in your report. Your final report must address both qualitative and quantitative aspects of the selected topics.
