What is Data Analytics?
Data analytics is the process of sourcing, cleaning and manipulating raw data to reveal metrics and formulate data insights. Data analytics is also used to improve internal operations, optimising a company’s efficiency and capacity for sustainable growth.
Data insights are the backbone of well-informed business decisions, leading to more effective strategies and increased market share.
Why study Data Analytics?
An incredible 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are generated daily, with the volume of the world’s data now expected to double every two years.
Underpinning the most profitable business strategies, big data is currently worth over US$200 Billion globally, meaning industry demand for data analysis skills is at an all-time high.*
As Chief Google Economist Hal Varian puts it, “The sexy job in the next 10 years will be statisticians, and I’m not kidding.”

“Academy Xi gave me the training I wanted; the discomfort zone I needed, and a family I never expected!”

Academy Xi gave me the training I wanted; the discomfort zone I needed, and a family I never expected! I wouldn't be where I am without the Academy Xi tribe putting me in the firing line of opportunities I may not have dared for myself. Be prepared to work hard. Accept and push through the moments of uncertainty, doubt and overwhelm. Surrender to and trust the process.
