Dear Microsoft, I’m confused.

Last year I heard about your Professional Program for Data Science.

I’ve been following along, albeit slowly, as I’ve been supplementing your content with other MOOCs. But the point is I’ve been following along and still intend to.

Your content is good. Not the best, but good.

Here’s the thing though: Why suddenly announce Microsoft Advanced Analytics?

On the surface it looks all shiny and new with the focus on Cortana Intelligence and Machine Learning.

Looking under the hood though, I see the course catalog and certifications mirror those of the original program.

What gives?

Are these two different, or the same? Are they meant to be complementary? Where does one stop and the other begin?

SO. MANY. QUESTIONS.
