Hey guys got a question for the community. I'm doing a masters in public administration and I just decided to get a graduate certificate in accounting (basically a grad minor) to get ready for an entry level job as a budget analyst.
I looked at the occupational handbook on the department of labor site and it recommends budget analyst have some experience in data mining and budgeting techniques in addition to the general accounting courses.
I want to know what is a good open source data mining package (if there is one) as well as a good open source accounting software. I'm not starting the courses til the fall but I want to know some of the basics of data mining as well as computerized accounting.
Any info you guys could provide on this question would be appreciated.
I know nothing about the types of software you are looking for - but I would strongly recommend you contact the organisation running the courses you are attending - they should know what previous students have done before and will be able to recommend what would fit in well with your course.
