This course has given me a holistic understanding and knowledge of data driven initiatives/projects. I learnt about the latest technologies such as data pipelines, low code/no code, CI/CD, cloud deployment, data compliance, and and how can I deploy them.

I find this very good for someone who already has some technical knowledge and currently at the senior level and has the responsibility of leading data driven initiatives. This incredible learning experience has broadened my horizons and equipped me with invaluable skills in data-driven business, leadership, and digital transformation.
