TIBCO, Taiwan’s Yuan Ze University launch analytics centre

TIBCO Software and Yuan Ze University in Taiwan are expanding their collaboration with the launch of the YZU – TIBCO Analytics Centre, with the aim of educating working adults on data analytics for IoT applications in a more visual manner.

The objective is to equip them with key data analysis skills essential for their careers.

This is the second phase of the collaboration, which is focused on the working executives who are keen to continue learning new skills to equip themselves with the right data analytic skill sets in high-tech manufacturing.

The initiative will also include a Data Visualisation and Analytics for Business Intelligence programme, which is a three-day course on how to turn data into insightful information.

Yuan Ze University will use TIBCO Spotfire in its teaching and demonstration efforts, educating working adults on how to use connected intelligence insights for business decisions.

“Participants will be able to get hands-on learning through this special course,” said Erich Gerber, SVP for APJ and EMEA at TIBCO. “With Yuan Ze University, we believe that augmenting students’ capabilities and skillsets with a combination of leading intelligent, connected solutions will be a powerful contribution to the nation’s developing digital ecosystem.”

TIBCO Spotfire will be used in six sections of the Data Visualisation and Analytics for Business Intelligence course, which will highlight key fundamentals of visual analytics, allowing participants to get started by building highly interactive visualisations.

The course will present diverse charting options and data connectivity,  in addition to covering predictive analytics with the use of different models.

“Companies continue to prioritise advanced analytics in their investment decisions, making it important for them to have a highly educated, high-tech workforce to fully reap the benefits and contribute to the nation’s economy,” said Su, Chuan-Jun, professor and director of the Smart Production and Innovative Management Research Centre at Yuan Ze University.
