Over the last 10 years, Business Analytics has become a buzzword. Pioneered by companies like General Electric, Walmart, American Express, Netflix, Amazon, etc., it has today spread across industries and become the cornerstone of many companies. Companies are using analytics in making data driven business decisions to accelerate business impact.
The most talked about areas in Analytics today are Business Intelligence (BI), Big Data, Visualization, Data Mining, Predictive Modeling and Optimization. But another, equally important area in Analytics, ‘Research’ has seldom been spoken about much.
