    Data Analytics

    Data analytics is a process, where the raw data is processed to carry out useful information and draw conclusions out of the data acquired. Data analytics is considered as a useful technique as it is used by many companies and industries to make power of decision-making better (Runkler, 2012). Industries or companies are also found to use the process of data analytics because it helps in verifying or disapproving a model or theory based on the data processing. Data analytics is also referred as a qualitative and quantitative process, which is used to improve the productivity of a company and helps in gaining profits (Runkler, 2012).

    Data analytics is a different approach from data mining as data mining focuses on carrying out results on the basis of large data sets and use of software to identify the results while data analytics is solely based on the pre-acquired knowledge of researcher (Runkler, 2012). In data analytics, a researcher focuses on the interference and the process, which leads to the conclusion. In data analytics, the data acquired is divided into different categories so that the researcher is able to identify the behavior and also analyze the behavior of the data pattern. This helps in understanding the pattern that varies from organization to organization based on the requirements (Runkler, 2012).

Data analytics helps a business to gain information by using a fewer amount of data sets (Attunity, 2013). With the usage of fewer data sets, there is a reduction in the time taken to process the data in order to acquire useful knowledge. With the evolution of big data analytics, companies find it easier to extract knowledge that is useful for business gain. Previously, it was difficult for the companies to manage structured and unstructured data and gain information, but with the use of data analytics, information processing has become easier (Attunity, 2013).
