FAQs

Data analytics is the science of collecting and analyzing raw data in order to make conclusions about that information.

A Data Analyst is a person who can skillfully extract this information using data modeling and inform management on what it needs to know for decision-making.

Day-to-day tasks focus on gathering data from a variety of sources according to predefined data sets and variables. Collected data is then cleaned up and validated for accuracy and uniformity. Using statistical tools, Data Analysts then analyze and interpret results to identify trends, patterns, and new opportunities from the data.

Data and predictive analytics are changing everything from medicine and manufacturing, to marketing, HR and education. The future of products and services all around us is being driven by data and the data professionals who know how to wield it.
