Analytics and data are very closely interrelated, but analytics is differentiated by the fact the focus of analytics is the more on the discovery and interpretation side of data. Once data is analyzed there are meaningful patterns that can be ascertained. Analytics has impacted business economy in profound ways by providing useful tools for visualization including software generated graphs and charts, that can then be used for enhancing business performance, and profitability. There are varying subsets of the analytical field which have taken shape over the years with much of the latest focus being on predictive analytics. In the predictive sense, analytics can be used to interpret a pattern in data that would suggest future behavior or future outcomes. This allows organizations the opportunity to make business to forecast future data, rather than historical data. This can provide an immense competitive advantage. Although, predictive analytics can only be as accurate as the data collected; and it’s assumption that that future events and behavior will follow historical patterns. This is not always accurate, but the analytics insight is still valuable for business intelligence.
Although analytics jobs have been around a while, it’s evolved quite a bit from its origin roots in statistical analysis. Many experts agree we are only at the dawn of the era of data analytics, which paves a very nice future of growth as the field of analytics touches more and more aspects of both business and personal lives. Currently some of the applications for analytics include the functions of marketing optimization, financial analysis, risk management, web, and security just to name a few. The field of analytics will certainly face many challenges in that data is constantly changing in real-time and not all data can be collected in the first place, so there are sometimes gaps left in it. In the future, as more and more digital touchpoints are interacted with, fewer gaps will exist and therefore the more accurate data analysis can become. In the coming years, the analytics tools we utilize to make decisions will become more evolved and therefore more valuable. For certain this field is a great one to pursue a career in as it’s interrelated with many other fast growing fields such as big data jobs. But first let’s take a look at career considerations for analytics jobs and employment in the field.
