The class gave me a great overview of the foundations that data analysis is built upon - I learned about the process of working with data from source identification through visualization/reporting, the various tools and methods that can be used through the process and also the different possibilities and roles in data analysts. I feel that I have a very good footing from this course to move forward into learning the competencies needed to become a data analyst.

I did not find this course useful. Also the quizzes were ridiculous - asking what did a particular person say he/she thought about something in a specific video....Memorizing names of software is not useful at all. We need to see examples.

This course offers, the most conspicuous methodology of study guidelines, and lectures for anyone who aspires to pursue a career in Data Analytics ,and has no technical background.

The formats and learning material are laid out and explained in easy, and comprehensive terms, that convey the core effective directives of what Data Analytics entails, in conformity and detail.

Therefore without further ado I give it 5/5 stars.

Might seem as a beginner/novice course, but even for people already doing some sort of data analysis in specific domains, the course gives a good overview of all the bricks, tools and concepts making the Data Analytics field. Even seasoned analyst will find the refreshment (or learning) useful to get a clearer and more concise picture of where they stand, where they want to go and how.

Very good for people who have no background on Data analysis. Very clear and rich in information before diving in depth!

not much Interactive, I felt sleep many times during the course.



I really enjoyed this course!! There was a ton of information in every video yet the videos were short and to the point. The voices used in the videos are clear, easy to follow and actually quite pleasant. Also, the images and graphics used in the video are very organized and clear to understand which enhanced the visual experience. The layout of the course content is very organized and everything is easy to find and go back to. I love to see the checkboxes turn green as I am moving through the course. It really keeps me wanting to complete more and more. I started this course on a Tuesday late at night and I have completed it by Thursday afternoon (less than 2 days). I learned so much and am super excited to continue my journey learning Data Analytics!!

The skills and tools taught are interesting and useful, and it's rewarding to build your own project within the guiding structure of the course, requiring considerable time just to divine what was being asked for. Support from the teaching staff in the forums seemed inconsistent, with many questions receiving unhelpful responses and some simply ignored. Of course, struggling with the material pushes you to develop a deeper understanding of it, and the open-endlessness is good practice for real-world problems. Ultimately, I was able to figure it out, but I think a few corrections and clarifications would improve the curriculum.

It's been a wonderful journey for me kick starting this course with Introduction to Data Analytics. I have really learnt a lot since I started and I can't wait to move to the next level. The course materials are really informative: The notes and the videos really helped me get much understanding of all that is been taught, especially the graphical representations depicted in the videos. The naration and the expect reviews are awesome. It makes you want to get to their level so soon. Lol

Kudos to the instructors and all who put this amazing stuff together!

I don't usually say something is perfect, because it may sound that it can't be improved, but I'll make an exception for Introduction to Data Analytics from IBM and Coursera. This training was perfectly designed, organized and structured. The theory behind each concept and the association with the software you need to use for the different types of work is excellent. The course is very well balanced, the exams are concise and above all the course never let me lose the initiative or the interest to learn more concepts. Well done!

Es dinamico, con contenido muy valioso, fácil de entender y poner en practica lo aprendido en cada semana. En mi caso continuare con el certificado profesional.

M​y introduction to your Data analytics course was an eye opener . I am 51 and took a career break after working for 26 years . Wondering what I could do with my time I came across your course , dwelt on doing it and finally decided that it would open up avenues to the future for me . And it did . The first course have kept me equally hopeful that what I learnt from you will only improve my future career prospects. I am looking forward to the next couse.

T​hanks for making it awesome. 👏 😊 🙏

This course is very helpful if you are trying to understand what the profession of a data analyst is really about, what skills are required for it and what software you need to be familiar with. I found all explanations clear and viewpoints of professional data analysts useful. What I would like to see added to the course is a couple more use cases from practice like in the video "A day in life of a Data Analyst", it gives you the feel of the job, which could be valuable for learners.

I can't believe I almost skipped this course to go straight into the Excel one! This has answered so many questions I had and helped me understand so much that I needed to know to improve on my job and help me choose a career path in analytics. It really puts the whole industry into perspective from multiple aspects and the instructors make concepts really simple to understand. I absolutely recommend this course if you need a thorough introduction to Data Analytics.

This course was really intuitive and needed less effort to get comfortable at. I love IBM courses because of their organized structure, brevity and problem centric nature of the labs and final assignment. I was a very great experience overall and that applies to all their courses I have taken so far.

I think the peer review sections after marking by the first reviewer should be cross-checked by at least one more reviewer.

by Aedrian A


As expected, this course, from a leader in the data analytics/science field, provides an excellent overview of the state of the art in data analytics. Unlike other courses that I tried in the topic, this offering hit the ground running by emphasizing high-yield points from both the official material and the expert viewpoints. I am looking forward to finish the Professional Certificate where this course belongs.

S​ome parts of the course are too technical and quite overwhelming in detail but everything is absolutely essential. It gives a clear direction despite the many paths of data analytics. All the overwhelming details precisely will inform you of what you can do and still be even if you're literally a beginner with zero background in data. I also admire that the course highlighted women as data professionals.

by Hugo B


T​his is a great introduction to the field, and also a very good opportunitiy to figure out if this is “the field for you” bucause you get enough details about multiple aspects among the point of view of professionals, making it easy to metitate upon the subject and realize if it relates to your current or aspired capabilities as well if the whole specialization will take you toward your goals.

by Liza Z


WOW! This course was incredible. It contains a lot of useful, structured and understandable information. I was able to understand the role, responsibilities of a Data Analyst, the necessary knowledge and qualities that will be required for this position. Thanks to this course I clearly understand that I want to be Data Analyst.

If you are in doubt, do not hesitate:) It was not boring at all!

Excellent introduction to Data Analytics. Provides the fundamentals of data sources, file structure and the data wrangling process. It provides knowledge of the different languages and tools needed to wrangle and visualize data in a way to gain insights, enhance and improve decision making. Above all, the experienced views from data professionals is just priceless. Nice job! Coursera.

by Abhishek S S


Overall the course was great except for the indepth analysis of various aspects of Analytics which are considered good for beginners. A major part of the course involved continuous back and forth analysis of the information being shared.

I'm happy to involve in this course and looking forward to seeing myself working with large data sets and show-off my Analytics and programing skills.

by Ojarikre G E
