Why Business Analytics :

Business Analytics also known as Business Intelligence (BI) has become strategically important for every organisation to keep competitive advantage by extracting meaningful information from the flood of digital data collected by businesses, government, and scientific agencies (big data). The recent years have seen explosive growth of digital data stored in computer databases. With continued innovation revolving around digital technologies, the Internet and mobile computing, the amount of data continues to grow exponentially. At this rate, there will soon be a shortage of talented analysts who can help organisations work with this much big data. McKinsey Global Institute’s Big data: The next frontier for innovation, competition, and productivity estimates that by 2018, “The United States alone could face a shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 people with deep analytical skills as well as 1.5 million managers and analysts with the know-how to use the analysis of big data to make effective decisions”.  The earning opportunity through job & consultancy work for Business Analytics Experts is 5 to 10 times more than other professions in the society.
