Business Analytics is the science of making sense of the millions of bytes of data (Big Data) available, to benefit the business. It is emerging as the most appealing job of the century, according to the Harvard Business Review.
The very existence of companies in the new economy is dependent on how good their analytics team is, at sifting through, making sense of and applying insights derived from the analysis of data. What they do with the information, and how they mine it for trends, insights and predictors of future behaviour, will increasingly be a key driver for a successful business.
