Data Literacy Workshop at SKANS School of Accountancy

TallyMarks Consulting Qlik SKANSTallyMarks Consulting delivered a guest lecture on Data Literacy at Skans School of Accountancy ACCA Campus in Lahore. The purpose of the interactive lecture was to make the bright accountancy and business students aware of the fact that data is getting generated in a huge volume every passing minute.

We need tools that store, analyze and process the data in order to have meaningful information out of it, that helps greatly in the decision making process. We shared with the participants that after spending a lot of time on the nuts and bolts of the analytics marketplace, we as Tallymarks Consulting harbor the view that the users should be empowered to load and build analytics with simple drag-and-drop simplicity. The participants were made aware of the fact that they do not require in-depth technical knowledge in order to analyze and visualize huge reams of data as Qlik (A data analytical BI tool) uses its strong and integrated cognitive and associative models to facilitate the business analysts to come up with the required analysis. The participants were also made aware of the fact that without generating the right kind of analysis what we get is only information, not intelligence.

Therefore; in order to create a meaningful analysis, people should become data literate which means that they should gradually develop the ability to read, understand, create and communicate data as information. We concluded the session by highlighting in front of the participants the mission we are on and the goal of a data literacy program, which is to improve everyone’s ability to read, work with, analyze and argue with data. In order to meet our defined goal, we shared several techniques with the participants in order to help them in becoming data savvy.

Guest Lecture on Data Literacy at National University of Sciences and Technology Islamabad

Nust Qlik Pakistan

TallyMarks Consulting delivered a guest lecture on Data Literacy at National University of Sciences and Technology Business School (NBS), Islamabad. The purpose of the interactive lecture was to make the bright business students aware of the fact that data is now coming at us from all the angles and as a result, an interactive dashboard is required to visualize the collected data. The students were taught that in order to create meaningful dashboards, they have to gradually develop the skill of data literacy that involves the ability to read, understand, create and communicate data as a piece of information.
Students of NBS were also made to understand how Qlik is a user-friendly analytics tool as it requires a user to simply load data and build analytics with drag-and-drop simplicity. It was also demonstrated in front of the students that the effective use of analytics tool greatly helps in analyzing huge reams of data and finding patterns and correlations that would usually go unnoticed to human analysts.
The session was concluded with an interactive brainstorming session with the students that once again focused on making the students understand that without learning data literacy skill, we will be playing with only vague data and information.
