Analytics is a challenging and exciting field that helps people make important informed decisions based on quantitative information. Business analysts make extensive use of data modeling, statistical techniques and scenarios to manipulate data to find meaning, explain causation and make predictions. 

Currently, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data are collected and stored by computers as a result of business and society’s greater dependence on information technologies and software applications to transact business and every-day life.
