Summary:

Business Analytics Certification

With the explosion of the Internet and globalization, industries leveraged the use of information technology to aid their day-to-day business processes. These companies were able to collect and store vast amounts of transactional data; however, extracting and learning useful knowledge from these stored data has been proved to be extremely difficult.

The concept of big data analytics emerged as the de-facto concept on analyzing huge amounts of data that is created in a fast-paced environment and also takes up a lot of variety. By incorporating business intelligence into your company, this initiative will encompass data-collection technologies and modern data analysis to wring every last drop of value from all your business processes. With analytics, companies can discern not only what their customers would want but also how much they’re willing to pay and what keeps them loyal. Companies would look beyond compensation costs to calculate its workforce’s exact contribution to your bottom line. Additionally, companies would not just track existing inventories; they also predict and prevent future inventory problems. Other potential benefits of big data analytics are but not limited to:

1. better-targeted social-influencer marketing,
2. customer segmentation,
3. understanding customer behavior,
4. more accurate business insights,
5. better planning and forecasting, and
6. identification of root causes.

To this date, the concept of Big Data analytics has not been totally received here in the Philippines, hence, making analytics part of a company’s overarching competitive strategy, and pushing it down to decision makers at every level would provide a definite competitive advantage over its competitors.
