Data analytics is the application of powerful new methods—drawn from computer science, mathematics and statistics, and domain sciences—to collect, curate, analyze, discover and communicate knowledge from “big data.”
There has been an explosion of demand for skilled data analysts who can communicate, solve problems, and work effectively in teams. Data analytics tools and techniques are used by many different industries to create, manage, explore, and analyze large, complex datasets in order to evaluate past performance, predict future trends, and make better decisions.
