Chapter 1. Introduction to Business Analytics

Information is advantageous. The more information we have, the better informed our decisions are. We are inundated with information or data in today’s world. With about 40% of the world’s population using the Internet, and with that number growing every second, data is ubiquitous. We have moved from being an analog world to a very digital one. E-commerce, newspapers, the Internet of things (IoT), music streaming—all generate huge amounts of data. The art of combining every data footprint and gaining actionable insights from that huge cache of data, which helps businesses grow, improves customer experience, and generates revenue, is known as business analytics.

Chapter 3. Consolidating Data from Disparate Systems for an Analytics Project

Analytics discovers patterns in data, by turning raw data into meaningful information. Analytics implies being able to generate insights by analyzing data generated by business systems. Because every business has several systems that support each business process, it is important that data from these different systems is merged before data analysis begins. This is critical to attaining a holistic view of business processes and the data generated by them. This chapter explains the importance of merging data and its attendant challenges and solutions.
