Empowering learners, Transforming lives

Manipal ProLearn has helped more than 23,000 learners progress in their careers with a variety of short term professional courses across IT, Management, and Finance.

I was present at the launch of Digital Unlocked by Google. We were invited since Manipal ProLearn has been partnering Google in creating certified Digital Marketers and in co-creating the Digital Unlocked course.

Analytics is hot. Startups, finance companies and hospitals are building analytics into their business. Data scientists are in huge demand. But there is an aspect of analytics that no one is paying attention to - driving analytics consumption. Let me explain what I mean.

Broadly speaking, there are two types of people involved in analytics.

1. Analytics Producers: The techies, statisticians, visualizers who "produce" reports, insights, algorithms, decision systems.

Would you be surprised if I said that you use analytics heavily in your everyday life? Perhaps, you use it much more for non-work purposes, than for your professional reasons. Did I hear a sigh of disbelief? Not so soon; let me elaborate.

Every concert (or for that matter, every live event), has it’s share of “secondary” market for the tickets. That market is what we call “black market” in India, where the tickets are sold at a significant premium. In a sense, this is corruption, and since tackling corruption is all the rage, concert organisers are beginning to turn to analytics to curb the grey market. The profits that are booked by the secondary market is actually the money that the event organisers are leaving on the table and that revenue upside is what is hooking their interest. 

This post is an Example Assignment provided to Manipal ProLearn Android learners. This is intended to be done on a lab Android phone that is not used regularly and does not contain data. The objective of this assignment is to teach you how to build custom Android OS and sideload APKs developed by you for Android. 

WARNING : DO NOT DO THIS EXERCISE ON THE PHONES YOU USE REGULARLY. YOU RISK LOSING YOUR DATA AND THE PHONE WILL STOP WORKING

Take a look at any statistical analysis. Chances are, you’d see an innocuous little statistic called p-value in there. Indeed, p-value has its own staunch set of followers. To them, and to most of us, p-value is that discriminatory force that separates the true from the untrue, the right hypothesis from the wrong hypothesis.
