BUSINESS DATA ANALYTICS  is the practice of iterative, methodical exploration of an organization’s data, with an emphasis on statistical analysis. Business data analytics is used by companies committed to data-driven decision-making.

Business Data Analytics or Business Analytics is used to gain insights that inform business decisions and can be used to automate and optimize business processes. Data-driven companies treat their data as a corporate asset and leverage it for a competitive advantage.

Successful business analytics depends on data quality, skilled analysts who understand the technologies and the business, and an organizational commitment to data-driven decision-making.

Business Data Analytics techniques break down into two main areas.

The first is basic business intelligence. This involves examining historical data to get a sense of how a business department, team or staff member performed over a particular time. This is a mature practice that most enterprises are fairly accomplished at using.

The second area of business analytics involves deeper statistical analysis. This may mean doing predictive analytics by applying statistical algorithms to historical data to make a prediction about future performance of a product, service or website design change. Or, it could mean using other advanced analytics techniques, like cluster analysis, to group customers based on similarities across several data points. This can be helpful in targeted marketing campaigns, for example.

Specific types of business analytics include:

  • Descriptive analytics, which tracks key performance indicators to understand the present state of a business;
  • Predictive analytics, which analyzes trend data to assess the likelihood of future outcomes; and
  • Prescriptive analytics, which uses past performance to generate recommendations about how to handle similar situations in the future.

In this program, you will learn the nuances of data collection, data presentation, and model building using real-life data sets. You will learn how to build supervised and unsupervised machine learning models, you will be introduced to algorithms to solve classification and segmentation problems. We will also introduce you to R platform, and different algorithms which can be used in the model building activity.

At the end of the program you will develop a clear understanding of the need for business analytics and will be able to apply it to solve some interesting problems cutting across various business domains.

Peter – Review

Peter Packer

Financial Accountant
“I completed my Financial Modeling training from PreparationInfo in Feb'17. This training was useful for me in 2 sense. First, I was well aware of the theoretical aspects of Financial Modeling, however, was not confident in actual implementation and building a new one from my own. This training helped me overcome my doubts and bring me the confidence to build a complete Financial Model from my own. Second, I got a well-recognized Certificate from PreparationInfo.”
Manuel Review


Media Advisor
“ Digital Marketing is something which I thought I would never understand completely because of its broadness. After attending PreparationInfo 6 days bootcamp, I realized that its actually worth spending time and money on this training since it helped me not only understand the fields which I am well aware of but also fields which I believed I would never understand. Instructor was experienced and no doubt a Master in all the concepts.”

John Doe

Technical Account Manager
“ PMP is one certification which I was planning to get from a long time and even after so many years, I was not getting enough time to prepare for it and finally I decided to go for an Exam Preparatory training and I now find myself lucky to get connected with someone from PreparationInfo from my colleague. He recommended this training and it was a nice decision for me to go for PMP certification before the new PMBOK edition comes out. The exam pattern and syllabus might change hence I gave my PMP examination this year only after attending training from PreparationInfo. Now, I am an PMP certified professional from PMI-USA. ”


Technical Production Manager
“ Training was very helpful and I am happy that I attended Green Belt training from PreparationInfo. The best part is the on-going project support provided by Instructor which helped me not only learn those concepts during training but also to implement them in my own organization. Great Training and worth attending it. I appreciate the instructor knowledge and dedication for support. ”


Network Engineer
“ I attended ITIL-Foundation training from PreparationInfo. Instructor I must say is excellent. He is still in touch with me and I learnt a lot from him not only during the training but also after the training I ask many critical doubts from him. I am now planning to go for IT LifeCycle module and would love to join the training again if the same trainer comes by PreparationInfo. ”
