IES are pleased to launch a new set of training courses in Data Visualisation and Digital Skills. We recognise the evolving needs and demands of our challenging industry and the rapid growth and development of new tools and technologies which can be used to augment building simulation and modelling. These include data visualisation, Artificial Intelligence (AI), digital skills and the use of open data. One of the main features of these courses is using powerful tools like Tableau, Google Apps, IBM Cognos Analytics and more.
IES have created a set of courses which link our World leading Virtual Environment (VE) with these tools and shows you how to export VE data and make use of these advanced business intelligence technologies. We cover the use of Tableau, IBM Cognos Analytics, Google Apps, Google Data Studio and many more cloud based productivity tools and widgets. The 5 courses in the series are:
- Using Business Intelligence (BI) tools to analyse and visualise VE results
- Visualising Simulation Data from the VE using maps, floor plans & dashboards
- Analysing VE results using Google's powerful suite of data analysis, visualisation and productivity tools
- Getting started with A.I – Analyse your modelling and simulation results using powerful, easy to use artificial intelligence tools from IBM
- Using open data and Google dataset search to enrich and inform your simulation projects
Each of the courses comes with a specially designed VE Python Script to assist you in exporting the VE data. This saves you time from manually formatting data in a spreadsheet.
You can purchase the full package for just £200 per year; a saving of 20%
