What is Business Analytics?
By Helen S. Lee
Business Analytics involves the use of quantitative tools and statistical methods on data to better understand an organization’s outcomes and the factors influencing them. Often Business Analytics includes building models and methodologies that use past data to predict future outcomes. Business Analysts then use data learnings to develop strategic recommendations to improve an organization’s processes and operations. While doing so, Business Analysts work with different departments and levels across an organization. Working as an integral team member, Business Analysts help implement the strategic changes developed from these data learnings.
