What is data analytics?
Data is a group of facts that can take many different forms, such as numbers, pictures, words, videos, observations, and more. We use and create data every day, like when we stream a show or song or post on social media.
Why start a career in data analytics?
Companies must continually adjust their products, services, tools, and business strategies to meet consumer preferences and demand and to react to emerging trends. Because of this, data analyst roles are in demand and competitively paid.
Data analysts make sense of data and numbers to help organizations make better business decisions. They prepare, process, analyze, and visualize data, discovering patterns and trends and answering key questions along the way. Their work empowers their wider team to make better business decisions.
