Each day, an estimated 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created. The past two years alone accounted for 90% of this data creation. But what to do with it all? This is where data analytics comes in.
Both Data Analysts and Data Scientists work with data. The difference between these two related fields is what is done with this data.
Data analytics is a broad term for the process of evaluating raw data in order to draw conclusions that can be used to provide useful insights that will drive decision-making at a company or business.
Presenting data in a visual manner makes it easier to understand and faster to process, even for those who aren’t mathematically inclined or trained in analytics. These visual representations of data aren’t just visually appealing, they also tell a story about the information, allowing audience members to spot outliers, notice trends, and see patterns emerge from data.
Data analytics strives to analyze as much of this data as possible in order to spot customer trends, provide more effective services and better products, and ultimately help businesses make better decisions.
This suite of architectures, technologies, processes, reporting, and data visualization products can be used to extract meaningful information from raw data.
Tableau is the fastest-growing platform for visual analytics on the market. It allows users to simplify raw data into a format that’s easy to access and understand by those working at any level of an organization.
Two of the most popular data visualization products currently on the market are Microsoft Power BI and Tableau. But which one is the best for your workplace?
Data Analysts use a variety of software tools to analyze and visualize large stores of data. Data analytics software allows users to display the results of a data query using a visual dashboard, which can be customized to display specific representations in distinct visualizations.
