Facing the maritime data revolution

Big data may be defined as extremely large data sets that may be analysed computationally to reveal patterns, trends, and associations, especially relating to human behaviour and interactions1. The  process of gathering and storing large amounts of data is not new. However, simply having data available is not the end goal of the data revolution. Compared to other industries, many maritime companies struggle to realize the potential big data analysis offers to improve day-to-day operations. This is where the Venturn Data Science (VDS) Programme comes into play.

Venturn Data Science

The VDS Programme tailors specifically to the maritime industry; it helps maritime professionals develop practical skills that they can directly apply to their operations. Aside from providing a maritime context for data analytics, it’s a unique way of networking with other professionals in the field and understanding and solving relevant data problems together.

Some affinity with data and data analysis is required, as the programme essentially transforms employees that already work wiemployees that are already familiar with your business processes and give them the chance to grow withth data to some extent into full-fledged data scientists. Creating in-house data scientists eliminates the need to hire expensive and hard-to-find data professionals.  You can fully utilize the potential of your own your organisation instead of being left behind. You become more attractive as an employer and increase the worth of your employees by keeping up with the times together.

January 2018 marks the start of the new and improved version of the programme, which puts more focus on the quality of the lessons to ensure that every participant gets the most out of every course day. You can find the VDS Programme brochure here.
