Analytics and Dashboards

BI and Analytics Overview

Analytics is the discovery and communication of meaningful patterns in data. It relies on the simultaneous application of statistics, computer programming and operations research to approach problems in business. Analytics often utilizes visualization methods to communicate insight. Analytics are usually based on modeling requiring extensive computation and thus the algorithms and software used for analytics tend to bridge the disciplines of computer science, statistics and mathematics.
