Rochester, New York – [May 13, 2020] CertNexus has expanded its portfolio of emerging tech certifications and micro-credentials to include data science for business professionals (DSBIZ). DSBIZ has been developed to assist any non-technical professional who wants to increase their ability to drive more effective use of an organization’s data.

Data is a plentiful resource. Organizations that are able to select, manipulate, analyze, predict, and derive value from data will gain a significant edge. Understanding what data science is and how it can impact business is rapidly becoming a requirement for many job roles. Yet the majority of data science projects do not reach their full potential due to a lack of effective business direction.

DSBIZ (DSZ-110) – CertNexus’ newest THINK level offering – is a credential that offers business leaders, sales and marketing managers, project managers, and other business stakeholders a streamlined course to help make decisions and drive organizational data science strategies. DSBIZ candidates will learn data science concepts, methods of use, plus the challenges and benefits using relative business examples. Taught over two to four hours in either virtual or in-classroom settings, successful candidates will earn a DSBIZ digital badge which can be shared via a number of social platforms.

“Data is no longer a byproduct of business, it’s the core to the of success for almost every organization,” said Megan Branch, Chief Product Officer. “DSBIZ is intended to increase the necessary knowledge so business leaders can positively influence their organization’s data science initiatives.”
