Data analysis with Matlab for Excel users

MathWorks will be holding free seminars focusing on how MATLAB can help Excel users analyse and visualise data more efficiently. The seminars will take place this month in Melbourne, Hobart, and Sydney.

MathWorks experts will demonstrate how MATLAB can help overcome limitations and supplement analysis carried out in Excel.

Through a series of live demonstrations, MathWorks engineers will provide insight to how MATLAB can be used to access data from various sources; quickly explore, analyse and visualise data; perform statistical analysis and curve fitting; customise and automate analysis and reporting; and develop and deploy applications.

By reducing the amount of time spent on the analysis of data, users are able to allocate more time to innovation.

“Today’s engineers are increasingly expected to complete a greater number of tasks, to a higher degree of complexity, in less time. MATLAB enables users to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages,” said Andrew Clay, Managing Director at MathWorks Australia.

“MATLAB can be used in a wide range of applications, including signal and image processing, communications, control design, test and measurement, financial modeling and analysis, and computational biology.”

The seminars are designed for engineers, analysts and scientists involved in research, data analysis, and product development. Prior experience with MATLAB is not required.

The complimentary half-day seminars will be held in:
· Melbourne – Tuesday, 23 November 2010, 9:00am-12:30pm
· Hobart – Thursday, 25 November 2010, 9:00am-12:30pm
· Chatswood – Tuesday, 30 November 2010, 9:00am-12:30pm
