Whether you’re looking to expand your IT skillset, or want to know more about what your IT coworkers are talking about, there are a range of resources available to you that will expand your IT skill set.

The Fall 2016 CAS E-Forum (released by the CAS Data and Technology Working Party) offers in-depth explanations of IT terms and concepts such as data quality, databases, business intelligence, and data science to help you develop a more well-rounded IT skill set.

Highlights include a common definition of “data science”, examples of times when the actuarial process was helped by business intelligence, discussion of best practices and how an actuary plays a vital role in them, as well as a nuanced explanation of the differences between a database and a data warehouse.
