Competitive Advantages

The term "BigData", which has arisen in the last decade, is directly related to the emergence of the problem of a rapid increase in the volume of data that occurs, first of all, in business structures due to the fully functional informatization of business processes; in scientific organizations - due to the emergence of new measurement opportunities; in government organizations - with an increase in the volume and functionality of services, as well as in public communication networks.

An important feature of the program is its focus on the needs of the business in new technology. The program focuses on the enterprise, as on a system with a developed information infrastructure that provides automation of management tasks. In this aspect, it becomes possible to distinguish classes of managerial functions, where the introduction of big data technologies will make it possible to obtain new characteristics of activity for making decisions, forecasting and forming control actions. The “from tasks to technology” approach incorporated into the program develops competencies that are important for specialists who can accelerate the implementation of big data technology in practice, and will ensure high demand for both the technology itself and the existing tools.

Professional Activities and Competencies of Programme Graduates

The program is aimed at the formation of the following interdisciplinary competencies:

  • mathematical and technological knowledge and skills for the selection, assessment, analysis and use of tools and big data technologies;
  • competencies providing an understanding of business architecture, the impact of introducing new IT technologies, including big data technologies, on the efficiency of enterprise management, changing the value chain;
  • management competencies in the implementation of big data systems and services based on big data technologies;
  • research competencies in the field of big data analytics, stochastic optimization, predictive modeling, forecasting, enterprise data management, business analysis, economic and mathematical modeling.

The program is focused on training graduates who are able to:

  • carry out work on the implementation and evaluation of the effectiveness of technologies and tools of big data at the enterprise;
  • manage enterprise data (Data Management);
  • introduce and apply analytics and decision support tools based on big data technologies, implement decision management (Decision Management);
  • to develop new models of enterprise information infrastructure, taking into account the capabilities of big data technologies (Model Management).
