We at DexLab Analytics conducted a survey, where we asked some of the tech savviest professionals associated with the ITES/Telecom/Marketing/BFSI fields, if they look to change their line of work in the near future and if they do, what will it be? Most of their response was to get into – Business Analytics.
But we have also noticed that although many are ready to take up Business Analytics for their career, when the time comes to take the big leap they are frazzled with a million questions that leave them confused. So, to help give such professionals some direction while taking such important decisions, here we have answered some of the most commonly arising question in the minds of students.
Firstly let us start with the very basics of the subject. What essentially is Business Analytics? Although this question has been answered by us numerous times; to put it simply it is the logical way we make decisions or the way we use logic.
For better understanding imagine a scenario, you are at the mall for shopping for a new dress. Some stores at the mal are offering a sale while some aren’t. And like all malls this one also has diverse range of retailers from budget-grade to superior high-quality ones. Now how do you decide on a dress?
You and almost everyone else take a decision based on the available information or data. How do you find data? You gather them by perusing around the mall visiting different shops and looking at the available options. But what if all the data is available, are there any risks associated with available data then? Is decision making completely risk-free? In such a scenario, even if information or data is available to us, they are usually not very conclusive or not present in their entirety. So, it might help to analyze the data to reduce the risk of taking wrong decisions.
While this might seem like an overly complex process and unnecessary burden to take care of when just shopping for a plain old dress, but imagine making high-stake decisions in similar or even more complex settings at business. Sounds daunting don’t it? That is the main use of Business Analytics. And as long as the mountainous heap of data keeps growing in the industry, the work of a Business Analyst will not dry-out.
The important tools in business analytics today are:
- R programming
- Advanced MS Excel (using macros and VBA)
- Tableau/Spotfire/Qlikview etc.
