INFS6024: Managing Data at Scale

As the amount of data generated continues to grow dramatically, managing data at scale presents a set of challenges for which organizations have to be uniquely prepared. This unit provides students with what they need to know about generating, collecting, processing, storing, managing, analysing and interpreting data. The unit provides an understanding of the importance of data strategies, data governance and data quality, challenges associated with data protection, privacy and security, data management practices, and modern platforms and architecture to streamline data operations within an organisation. Students learn the importance of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data in mitigating information risks and emergent issues around data ethics.
