Statistics Essentials: Data Analytics Course

About Data Analytics

Data analytics (DA) is the process of examining data sets in order to draw conclusions about the information they contain, increasingly with the aid of specialized systems and software. Data analytics technologies and techniques are widely used in commercial industries to enable organizations to make more-informed business decisions and by scientists and researchers to verify or disprove scientific models, theories, and hypotheses.

As a term, data analytics predominantly refers to an assortment of applications, from basic business intelligence (BI), reporting, and online analytical processing to various forms of advanced analytics. In that sense, it’s similar in nature to business analytics, another umbrella term for approaches to analyzing data — with the difference that the latter is oriented to business uses, while data analytics has a broader focus. The expansive view of the term isn’t universal, though: In some cases, people use data analytics specifically to mean advanced analytics, treating BI as a separate category.

About Statistics Essentials

If you use a transportation metaphor you might say that statistics and machine learning are the vehicles that take us to both new and familiar places. You should also think of programming and software engineering as the roads and infrastructure necessary to make travel even possible. Linear algebra and basic statistics on the other hand align well with the motors and engines that propel our vehicles.
