Prof. Ravi Vatrapu from Ryerson University, Canada, delivered a research talk on Business Data Analytics: Transforming Big Data Sets into Business Assets on 29 October 2021. In his talk, Prof. Vatrapu focused on how researchers may generate business value from in-house and open big data sets and discussed the paradigms for developing competitive advantages and business value from new technologies.

Commenting on his takeaway from the program, Prof. Vinay Yadav, IIM V faculty from the Decision Sciences area, said, “The talk was quite interesting. Through various case studies and illustrated examples, we learned many things relating to another country’s policies, decision-making strategies, their type of regulation and efficiency, data analytics, and approaches to qualitative research.” Faculty, students, and PhD participants from IIM V were present for this talk.
