Methodology and pedagogical approach

The pedagogical approach is based on four fundamental pillars: learning, understanding, mastering and evolving.

  • Learn the basics to ensure a good understanding.
  • Understand to have control.
  • Master to be able to evolve.

The process combines the acquisition of technical knowledge, management and business to be on the border of worlds that sometimes have trouble understanding each other.

At the level of tools the approach is agnostic. It does not focus on one, but seeks to highlight what is common to all tools and rather highlights the advantages and disadvantages of each.

This methodology applied in both M1 and M2 will allow you to successfully meet the challenges of Big (and small) Data of any type of organization
