Key Technologies for Business Specialization

In this Specialization*, developed by IBM, you will learn three key technologies that are foundational and driving significant growth and innovation: Cloud Computing, Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Technology is essential for the future of business. Almost any organization that wants to modernize or get ahead, and anyone working there, needs to understand and leverage these essential technologies.

The courses in this Specialization provide foundational knowledge of Cloud, Data and AI, including business drivers behind their growth, the value they provide, their applications and use cases, and an understanding of how these technologies work. You will not only become familiar with the buzzwords associated with these technologies, but also experience them in action and develop hands-on skills to start working with them.

A Specialization is a group of (4-10) courses including a hands-on Capstone Project that helps you master a certain skill. Once you successfully complete all the required courses including the Capstone, you will earn the Specialization Certificate from Coursera and IBM, which you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
