MABS902-Assignment 1: Hollywood Movie
Description and goal
In this assignment, as a data analyst, you will provide data analysis advice to your client AussieMovies. The organisation is an investor in movies. You are required to develop an interactive report within this business context. The specifications below indicate what you need to produce, but not how to produce it.
Using a multitude of factors, the company managers want to
• Have a better understanding and visualisation of the data through an interactive report.
• In addition, it should help understanding
o the factors influencing positively or negatively the potential success or revenues of future movie projects, and
o the evolution of the market over the years.
Use your business analytics skills and SAS Visual Analytics to solve those questions.
The data set, available in SAS Viya, was obtained from several movie databases using both automated as well as manual means. It is more than likely that some of the values are captured/entered incorrectly. Hence, the accuracy of the data set cannot be guaranteed. This data set can be used for descriptive and predictive modelling.
The data dictionary is provided on the next two pages.
