Financial sector staff upskill in data analytics and decision-making

A training workshop has been held for staff of some major financial institutions in Accra to enhance their proficiency in data analytics and decision-making, a crucial need in the context of the financial sector’s rapid digital transformation.

Organized jointly by Yadaba Communications and Dataware Tech, the workshop equipped attendees with the necessary tools and knowledge to leverage data effectively, ensuring their organizations remain competitive and adaptable in a dynamic market. Each participant also went home with a certificate of participation.

Jeremiah Ishaya, the Lead Facilitator, stressed the vital role of data analytics in the financial industry, especially with the increasing demand for precise data analysis due to digitalization.

“Financial institutions must harness data to derive actionable insights. Data analytics, the process of extracting valuable information from large datasets, is essential. This training empowers participants to maximize the benefits of data for their institutions,” Mr. Ishaya stated. He also pointed out the challenges posed by Ghana’s data infrastructure, advocating for the establishment of robust mechanisms to implement data-driven policies effectively, and highlighting the importance of high-quality data.

Nana Kojo Hagan, a Business Intelligence Specialist at Dataware Tech, emphasized the significance of data science for operational efficiency. “This training was designed to transform leaders into data innovators rather than mere consumers. The participants’ active involvement and insightful discussions show considerable progress towards this goal,” Mr. Hagan explained.

The workshop, conducted by experts, covered a wide array of topics, including the basics of data analytics, advanced predictive modeling techniques, cutting-edge machine learning applications in finance, and hands-on data exploration and preparation.

Participants engaged in interactive sessions that allowed them to apply their new skills to real-world situations, with a focus on data-driven enhancements in risk management, customer engagement, and operational efficiency. The lively question-and-answer segments promoted active participation and the exchange of knowledge among attendees.

The workshop concluded with a collective commitment from participants to foster a data-centric culture within their organizations. They left with not only advanced analytical skills but also the leadership capabilities needed to drive their teams towards a data-driven business approach. “The workshop encouraged attendees to champion a cultural shift within their organizations,” the facilitators summarized.
