Frequently asked questions on Data Analytics

Frequently asked questions

Data Analytics is the process of sourcing, cleaning and analysing raw data to identify meaningful patterns, trends and insights. Insights extracted from data can be used to find answers to all kinds of questions, and solutions for even the trickiest problems.
Data Analytics helps us understand the effects of what we’ve been doing, what we could be doing, and any probable outcomes that come with a new course of action. At its core, data analytics tells us what to do next. The ultimate aim is to use hard facts to make well-informed decisions that help a project reach its goals.

Many businesses have a wealth of raw data at their fingertips, but translating it into actionable insights is easier said than done. Data Analytics helps a business tap into a vital resource and better understand its products, customers and competitors, as well as its own operational procedures and capabilities. Armed with this knowledge, businesses are able to identify inefficiencies and opportunities. Because data is not an opinion or a theory, it can act as an impartial source of truth when making important decisions.
